Healthy Incentives Program (HIP)
For any questions regarding this program, please call 508-817-4166. HIP provides a 100% incentive benefit for each SNAP dollar spent on fruits and vegetables purchased at our farmers markets. The incentive is added directly to the SNAP recipients’ EBT card and can be spent on any future SNAP eligible purchase. Information regarding the account balance can be found on the accompanying receipt, enabling consumers to easily track their HIP benefit. The maximum monthly incentive awarded is based on household size: 1-2 member households will be capped at $40, 3-5 member households at $60, and households with 6 or more members at $80.
