Which states will continue to distribute EA in July?

Emergency allotments (EA) started during the pandemic via SNAP to provide families with additional money for healthy food. The amount of each EA varies based on household size– but there is a minimum of $95 in addition to the recipient’s usual monthly benefit.

The additional funds are added directly to the recipient’s electronic benefits transfer (EBT) card. The EBT card can be used just like a debit card, but will only work at authorized stores.

The USDA oversees SNAP and has extended the public health emergency through July 15, 2022– which allows for the disbursement of the EAs.

The states that will continue to send EAs in July are:

  • Alabama
  • Alaska
  • Hawaii
  • Maine
  • New Hampshire
  • New Jersey
  • North Carolina
  • Oregon
  • Pennsylvania
  • Rhode Island
  • South Carolina
  • Virginia
  • Wisconsin
