• Starting in March 2020, the federal government approved Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) emergency allotments to give recipients additional support during the COVID-19 pandemic
  • There are two important federal changes to the SNAP Emergency Allotments in May 2021
    • Households that are already receiving the maximum SNAP benefits for their household size will now receive an additional $95 in emergency allotments in May
    • Households who are eligible for $0 in regular SNAP benefits will not receive the May emergency allotments. This change is because the federal government clarified households must receive regular SNAP to be eligible for emergency allotments
