Today is the last day for three states to receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits for the month of July.
Residents of Arkansas, Arizona, and Minnesota who qualify as low-income households and receive SNAP benefits can look forward to receiving their payments by July 13.
While it is common for several states to distribute SNAP payouts throughout the month, these three states have opted for an accelerated approach, ensuring that all eligible households receive their benefits earlier than usual.
This proactive measure aims to provide timely support and alleviate financial burdens for those in need, reinforcing the commitment of Arkansas, Arizona, and Minnesota to the well-being of their residents.
How Much Does the Average Snap Payment Cost?
According to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, the average SNAP payment for every member of the household per month will vary.
Arkansas is worth $271.
Arizona is $183.
$157 in Minnesota
Individuals’ SNAP benefit amounts are determined by household size, income limits, and other eligibility conditions.
The fiscal year of the SNAP program runs from October 1 to September 30 and is typically changed each year, with users’ family income normally within or below 130% of the poverty threshold, which is the annual earnings limit.
Schedule of Snap Payments
Here is the July SNAP schedule for three US states that will be finished giving out direct payments today.
Arkansas: 4–13 July
Arizona: 1–13 July
Minnesota: 4–13 July
The amount of SNAP benefits recipients will receive is determined by household size, income restrictions, and other eligibility conditions. SNAP users will be able to use their benefits by purchasing qualified food products with a prepaid digital benefit transfer card, which may be used at grocery shops like a debit card.
