Upcoming changes for SNAP participants in October

Participants in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program should expect two changes to program benefits beginning in October.

Most SNAP participants will see a slight increase in their monthly benefit for the following reasons:

  • On September 30, the 15% increase in SNAP benefits provided as part of the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 will end
  • Starting in October, benefits will increase due to the recent re-evaluation of the Thrifty Food Plan

The updated Thrifty Food Plan will increase participants’ pre-pandemic benefit amounts, before the 15% increase.
