Cecil County DSS Office Details

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, commonly known as SNAP, is part of a federal nutrition program that helps qualifying low-income households purchase nutritious food. This program is designed to increase households nutritional level so that they can stay healthy. Local departments of Social Services run the program through their local offices. Individuals must apply for the program and provide all the required supporting documentation. 

Basic Eligibility:
  • Citizenship and Immigrant Status
  • Social Security Numbers
  • Deductions (legally owed and paid child support payments, utility expenses, and others)
  • Verification of income, child support payments, and others

After the application is filed, a case manager will contact you to explain the program rules and assist you in complete any parts of the application that have not been filled out. The case manager will also request for proof of certain information you have given.

Once it is determined that the applicant is eligible for SNAP benefits, an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card, which is also called the Independence Card will be sent to the address provided in the application. The amount of benefit provided is based on income, resources and the number of individuals in the household. SNAP benefits are issued monthly on the EBT Card. This card can be used just like a debit card at authorized grocery stores and food retailers. 

SNAP benefits cannot be used to purchase:
  • Non-food items such as: pet food, soaps, paper products and household supplies
  • Alcoholic beverages and cosmetics
  • Vitamins and medicines
  • Hot foods that are ready to eat
