When individuals or families qualify for food or cash benefits, Oregon Trail accounts are set up for them. Benefits are deposited into the accounts each month. The Oregon Trail Card, along with a private, Personal Identification Number (PIN), is used to access benefits.
Oregon Trail Cards are used mostly for food benefits from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). They also are used for cash benefits through the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program. Oregon Trail Card Website:
