The United States provides numerous financial aid programs to support low-income populations, including the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as food stamps. This program offers financial assistance to individuals and families who struggle to afford food. The amount of assistance provided is determined based on each person or family’s specific situation. The designated amount is deposited monthly to beneficiaries through an electronic benefit transfer (EBT) card, which can be used at authorized retailers, grocery stores, and mobile markets.

While SNAP coupons are part of a federal program, the distribution of payments is managed by individual states. As a result, the payment date varies depending on the beneficiaries’ state of residence. Generally, SNAP benefits are issued on a monthly basis, but the exact payment schedule may differ across states.

What dates are SNAP (CalFresh) distributions in California?

In the Golden State, the payments were distributed on 1 July 2023, continuing until 10 July.
