Indiana SNAP recipients will receive maximum benefits in April

INDIANAPOLIS—When April distributions begin on Sunday, Indiana Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program recipients may receive additional benefits, according to the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration. 

The increased funds are meant to help people obtain food and support while the state responds to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Because of the federal Families First Coronavirus Response Act, the state can provide SNAP families with the maximum benefits allotment, which is based on household size.

The following chart provided by the Family and Social Services Administration shows the maximum benefits available by household size:

Families who already receive the maximum benefits will not receive additional funds.

SNAP recipients receive benefits via electronic transfer starting on April 5 and ending on April 23 with a schedule based on the first letter of the recipient’s last name.
