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 Supplemental Nutrition
Assistance Program (SNAP food benefits) and Temporary Assistance for
Needy Families (TANF cash benefits) program.
The Texas EBT Program uses the
Lone Star card
(a magnetic-stripe plastic debit card) to provide individuals and households
that qualify for benefits with access to
their SNAP and TANF benefits.
