Overview

What is HIP?

The Healthy Incentives Program (HIP) helps SNAP clients buy more fruits and vegetables for their household. SNAP benefits can be used at participating HIP retailers to buy fruits and vegetables. SNAP clients will receive $1 back on their EBT card for each dollar spent on eligible fruits and vegetables, up to a monthly limit. HIP retailers include approved farmers markets, farm stands, mobile markets, and community supported agriculture (CSA) farm share programs.
