Iowa Food Stamp Program
Iowa food stamps are available to families in need of public assistance.
The program provides benefits as EBT cards to help low-income families buy groceries.
Iowa food stamps information can be found at Iowa Department of Human Services where you can apply for food stamps online.
If you need help complete the assessment of needs questionnaire to find out what programs your household may be eligible to receive.
You are encouraged to complete the food stamp eligibility assessment. Answering the questions in the assessment will help you determine if you are eligible for other programs. However, you do not have to use the assessment tool to apply for food stamps in Iowa.
You will need to provide your name, address and signature as well information about your income and expenses. Once you submit your application a DHS worker will contact you for an interview to determine your eligibility. Interviews can be conducted in-person or on the telephone.
If you are approved to participate in the food stamp program you will receive an EBT card to purchase food to prepare at home.
If your household has monthly income of less than $150 and cash or bank accounts with less than $100 may be eligible for emergency food stamps within seven days of submitting the application.
