1. A Michigan State provided card (EBT
), that is used to help provide bill money
and/or food money
for those in severe need
who live in Michigan.
2. I thought it was called a "Bridge Card" because it helps people get from hard times across the bridge to better times. So, out of curiosity
, I asked the lady behind the window about it and she said no, it's name refers to the "Mackinac Bridge
"; but she thought that my idea about the card name explanation was more fitting and better though.
A picture of the Michigan Bridge Card
, and it's governmental definition, etc.. can be found online through Google
; but we can't post links on here, sorry.
EX: I use my DHS Bridge Card
to get groceries, and w/o
it I would starve
