Changes in Emergency Allotments

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) will continue to send extra money to beneficiaries in 32 states. This Emergency Allotment (EA) is given in addition to the monthly benefit.

The size of the benefit varies from family to family, but the minimum EA is $95– on top of their regular monthly benefit. The money is added to the recipient’s  electronic benefits transfer (EBT) card.

During the pandemic, SNAP agencies began providing emergency allotments (EA) each month. The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) oversees SNAP, has extended the public health emergency through July 15, 2022. The classification of public health emergency is what allows for EA distribution, which is why it may be extended again.

However, some states, like Nebraska and Tennessee, have already phased out the additional benefit. But, there are some states paying the EA through June.
