Attention EBT Cardholders

A small number of Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) cardholders may be experiencing issues using their EBT cards. OTDA is aware of the issue and is continuing to work closely with our EBT vendor to resolve it as quickly as possible. Those affected should contact their local department of social services about getting a temporary replacement card.
