Illinois Department of Human ServicesJB Pritzker, Governor · Grace B. Hou, Secretary
Starting June 2, the Illinois Department of Human Services is proud to offer online purchasing for more than 1.8 million Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) customers across a million households.
As the Pritzker Administration announced on May 20, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) approved IDHS' SNAP Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) Online implementation plan, which provides access to online purchasing for SNAP customers.
This will be automatically provided to all existing Link card holders on June 2, 2020 and can be used online at Amazon and Walmart - the first retailers to provide online SNAP in Illinois. IDHS is encouraging other grocery retailers to participate to deepen and broaden the reach of this program across Illinois communities.
To use SNAP benefits online, visit Amazon.com/SNAP or Grocery.Walmart.com and follow the instructions on the screen. To sign up for SNAP or if residents have any questions, please visit dhs.state.il.us.
