The key dates by state for the extension of food stamps: who collects SNAP in November?

Food vouchers are being handed out like usual though a number of states are continuing with an emergency plan to give extra help.

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program is designed to supplement the food budget of low-income families to ensure that they can afford to purchase healthy food and avoid periods of food instability. Back in January, 37 states had signed up to make their residents eligible for extra SNAP benefits, as part of the Emergency Allotment (EA) program. However, for November this number has been reduced to 21 states.

The EA benefits do not apply to all recipients, but will instead be used to boost the entitlement of households who would not otherwise be eligible to receive the full amount. If you were not previously receiving the maximum entitlement for your house size then the EA benefits will increase your total monthly benefits.

Under the revised guidance by the Food and Nutrition Service, households who had not been receiving EA payments and those whose EA payments were less than $95 per month saw their benefits increase.

You do not need to do anything to trigger the payment of the extra SNAP support, the additional money will be automatically added to your regular monthly payment.

Which states will send the payments and when?
