Emergency Allotments

During the pandemic, SNAP agencies provided emergency allotments each month. The minimum emergency allotment(EA) is $95 in addition to the normal monthly benefit. SNAP is overseen by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA)– and they will continue distributing EA through July 15, 2022.

However, some states like Nebraska and Tennessee, have already phased out the additional benefit.

More than 41.5 million Americans receive SNAP benefits every month. If you want to apply for SNAP, you need to register in the state you live. Each state has their own application, forms, and processes. In order to be eligible, you must meet certain bank balance.

Households that receive SNAP benefits are still expected to spend about 30% of their own income on food.

Benefits are paid out on a specific day each month, depending on your state.
