SNAP / Food Stamps - COVID-19

This information can change, please double-check sources for information, and continue to monitor sources or back here for updates.

SNAP/Food Stamps: eligibility is determined on a case by case basis, primarily based on household size and income.
How to Apply: you can apply for SNAP even if your last 30-days of income are not representative of what your income will be moving forward. DHS takes recent changes in your situation into account right away when determining benefits.  Please note that unemployment benefits will be counted as income. 
You do not need to go into a Department of Human Services office to get service.
Oregon Eligibility (ONE) provides an online application portal for the following public
assistance programs in the state of Oregon: Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP/food stamps), Oregon Health Plan (OHP), Employment Related Daycare (ERDC), and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF). Applicants need only submit one application to be considered for all programs for which they are eligible.
Apply online or you can also fill out a paper application or call ONE at 1-800-699-9075 to get assistance in filling out the application in a different way.

Policy/Rule Changes: Many rules have changed because of the state of emergency. Please call your local office for help with any questions.
  • ABAWD: Time limits are now suspended across Oregon. This means that those considered Able-Bodied Adults without Dependents (ABAWDs) do not need to meet work requirements in order to continue receiving SNAP. No SNAP benefits will be reduced or cut off for participants because of not meeting work requirements. If you have been cut off SNAP because of time limits in the past, please reapply as you may now be eligible.
  • Online Ordering: SNAP/Food Stamps cards (EBT) can now be used to order food online through Amazon and Walmart for home delivery across Oregon. Please note that there are delivery fees (which SNAP benefits cannot pay for).
