The Department of Public Health (DPHSS) announces that the Emergency Allotments (supplements) of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) for the month of September will be released today, September 18, 2020. These benefits will be electronically loaded into the SNAP recipients’ EBT cards.
As a reminder, the law authorized the issuance of emergency supplemental benefits to households receiving SNAP up to the maximum allowable SNAP monthly benefit for a household’s size. Calculation is based on the number of eligible household members. Households that already received the maximum benefit for their household’s size will not receive an additional emergency allotment.
