SNAP Asset / Resource Limits by State

The asset limit, also known as the resource limit, is how much in countable resources a household can have while still being eligible for SNAP. Resources include things like funds in a bank account. A home is not counted as a resource, and some vehicle value is counted in some states.

The Federal government sets the regular SNAP rules, which include an asset limit of $2750, or $4250 if the household has a member with a disability or over 60 years old. However, most states implement a policy called Broad-Based Categorical Eligibility, which sets an alternate pathway to SNAP eligibility that typically includes raised or removed asset limits.
