OHP/SNAP Assistance

Consider applying for the Oregon Health Plan (OHP) and Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program -- you could be missing out on $234/month and free comprehensive health insurance coverage. 

SNAP helps make college expenses more affordable by providing up to $234/month to buy groceries. The funds are loaded into an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card, which is like a debit card that can be used to purchase food at grocery stores, convenience stores, and farmers markets. OHP is free comprehensive health coverage for Oregonians who meet income requirements and other criteria. 

Who Qualifies: Students who are citizens or permanent residents may apply as long as they meet income limits and other eligibility requirements are met. 

If you have a child under age 18, they can be covered through Oregon Health Plan (OHP) regardless of immigration status.  

For more info on these and other assistance available at the OSU Human Services Resource Center:

Please contact the HSRC at https://studentlife.oregonstate.edu/hsrc, hsrc@oregonstate.edu or call (541)737-3747 between 9am-5pm Monday-Friday.
