SNAP Benefits to Increase

August 19, 2021 8:13 AM | Campbell (Administrator)

USDA announced its plans to permanently increase monthly SNAP benefits by 27% beginning Oct. 1, 2021. The increase follows language in the 2018 Farm Bill requiring USDA to evaluate and update the Thrifty Food Plan (TFP) by 2022. TFP is the basis for calculating monthly SNAP allotments and has not been updated with a major change since 1975. The current 15% increase in SNAP benefits that Congress authorized last year as part of a pandemic relief plan will expire on Sept. 30, 2021, the day prior to the onset of the 27% increase.
