Food stamps: Getting extra SNAP benefits in 2022

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has allocated funds to boost food stamps for Americans, but many states aren’t taking advantage of the offer.

The SNAP program helps families with a low income to be able to purchase their households food.

As the pandemic has continued to go on now for almost two years, food stamps have become a vital part of many people’s lives.

A lot of families lost income, or their jobs entirely.

Not only did people start losing money, but the cost of food started to rise due to inflation.

Will you see extra $120 per month?

Extra food stamps amid pandemic and inflation

37 states had opted in to give their residents additional food stamps as of Jan. 12.

This is part of the Emergency Allotment program.

The additional benefits will go to some already in the SNAP program in these 37 states.

Not everyone receiving food stamps will see more.

Households that would not get the maximum amount in SNAP will see more this month.

The money will automatically be added to your regular payment.
