Snap Benefits Increased Through September 2021


In a March 23rd release, the USDA announced a 15 percent increase in Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits extending through September 2021.  The $3.5 billion required to fund the increase was derived from the American Rescue Plan. It is estimated that the increase will provide $28 more per person per month over and above existing benefits.


In commenting on the increase, Secretary of Agriculture, Tom Vilsack (image right) stated, "the American Rescue Plan brings help to those hurting the most due to the pandemic.  It increases SNAP benefits to households and puts food on the table.  It invests in working people in small towns and small businesses to get the economy back on track".
