HIP puts money back on your EBT card when you use SNAP to buy healthy, local fruits and vegetables from HIP farm vendors
If you receive SNAP you are automatically enrolled in the Healthy Incentives Program (HIP). All you need to do is use it. Unlike SNAP, your HIP benefits do not get transferred to the next month. To use your HIP dollars:
- Make sure you have SNAP benefits on your EBT card to access your HIP benefits.
- Visit an approved farmers’ market, mobile market, or farm stand
- HIP will put SNAP dollars you spend on HIP produce back on your EBT card instantly.
- Enjoy your produce!
