June 30th, 2022 SNAP Emergency Allotments & Maximum Benefit Amounts

Note: While our screener is often updated, these blog posts might not be, so some of this information may no longer be accurate. The infomation below is for general informational purposes and should not be relied upon for guidance about your specific SNAP situation. Please refer to official USDA materials or your state website for official SNAP information.

Background

Due to the pandemic, a few changes were made to SNAP benefit amounts -- the biggest being the emergency allotments, which resulted in all households that received SNAP getting the maximum benefit for their household size. This means that the monthly benefit amount of a 2 person household could have been increased from the minimum of $20 to the maximum amount for a 2 person household: $459.

Additionally, two other programs were put in place. First, a 15% boost to all benefit amounts (which ended in September 2021), as well as a $95 boost for households that were already reciving the maximum amount, or were very close to the maximum.

Every month, each state will resubmit a request to the federal government to retain the emergency allotments and to continue giving their residents the maximum benefit amount (the extra Food Stamps). Theres usually no set date for when the emergency allotments will expire in your state, and unless the governor of your state has indicated otherwise, it often seems to be a month-to-month decision without a lot of advance notice. For example, here's a press release from Texas Governor Greg Abbott announcing on April 29th that the emergency benefits will still remain in May.

That is all to say that it's difficult to know for sure how long the emergency allotments will remain in your state. The official resource for which states have extended the emergency allotments is from the USDA, however if you visit this link you'll likely see significantly fewer states in the current month than in the previous month. There is a significant delay of when the extensions are acknowledged, often a state won't appear for a month on the USDA page until the 20th-30th of that month.

The best way to figure out if the emergency allotments are still active in your state is to first see in the USDA page above or the chart below to see if your state was active for the previous month. If so, then do a Google search for "SNAP Emergency Allotments Pennsylvania" and see if there is any news. Often, local news will be one of the first places that announces that the emergency allotment benefit is ending. If you don't see any articles, and your state was still active in the previous month, there's a pretty good chance it'll continue, and that your state is still working through distributing the amounts.

At this time, it does not appear that there is a ending date which states must end their emergency allotments. They may end up continuing into 2023.
