Texas Electronic Benefit Transfer Programs



The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) - Lone Star Business Services (LSBS) Unit manages and supports the Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) system for the delivery of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) food benefits and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) cash benefits.

The Texas EBT Program uses the Lone Star Card (a magnetic-stripe plastic card) to provide individuals and households that qualify for benefits with access to their SNAP and TANF benefits.
