THERE ARE CHANGES COMING TO THE NYC GTGS PROGRAM!
For Every $1 Spend using SNAP/EBT
(Food stamps) on eligible fruits, vegetables and beans, get $1 on your
PINK CARD to Buy More.
Once you qualify for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) or cash benefits (Temporary Assistance) you receive an EBT card, also known as a Common Benefit Identification Card (CBIC). The EBT card allows you to buy groceries and other items with your cash benefits at participating stores and other locations.
