Certain Nevada Public Assistance Benefits Can Now Be Used Online

Walmart and Amazon Accepting SNAP and TANF EBT for Online Purchases

Carson City June 15, 2020

Nevada has joined the growing list of states nationwide allowing Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits to be used in online grocery purchases. Effective June 10, 2020, program recipients in Nevada can use their SNAP and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) benefits for online grocery purchases at Walmart and Amazon.

“This new option reduces barriers for many program recipients,” said Administrator Steve Fisher. “By accepting SNAP and TANF for online grocery purchases families and vulnerable individuals are able to continue social distancing and still receive the food they need.”

Nevada EBT cardholders can make online purchases at participating Walmart stores for pick up or home delivery. Cardholders statewide can also place orders through Amazon for home delivery. Additional expenses including delivery fees and ineligible food/home purchases cannot be paid for with SNAP EBT and will require a split transaction.
