Can You Apply for Food Stamps in Texas Online?

The website, serviced by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission, allows users to apply for food stamps online. There are several steps necessary in order to apply on the site.

"Your Texas Benefits" is a website that allows residents to apply for many types of assistance. These include SNAP food benefits (food stamps), Medicare, Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP).

The site has a section that will help people determine what they may be eligible for. Once a person knows what to apply for, an applicant has to register with the site.

Applicants need to have information on hand to fill out the forms. This includes financial information, such as income and benefits, and expenses like rent and utilities and medical facts.
