Benefits

SNAP benefits can help you put healthy food on the table. SNAP monthly benefits can be used to purchase food at authorized retail food stores.

SNAP benefits are provided through an Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card, similar to a bank debit card or credit card. If you are eligible, an EBT account is set up for you, and every month your benefits will be deposited right into your account. The maximum monthly SNAP benefit amounts per household size as of October 1, 2020 are:

Maximum SNAP Benefit Allowances

2 $459
3 $658
4 $835
5 $992
6 $1190
7 $1316
8 $1504

Note: A SNAP budget must be calculated for your household in order to determine SNAP eligibility and benefit amount.

The SNAP Call Center number is (716) 858-7239.
