Extra SNAP Benefits Could Expire Soon
SNAP benefits recipients in Florida could see their monthly allotments decrease in October if the Biden administration does not extend the public health emergency declaration by October 15, 2022.
The benefits were increased under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act.
This allowed states like Florida to waive certain eligibility requirements and give households the maximum amount of SNAP benefits for their household size.
The extra benefits were provided even if a household’s income might traditionally qualify them for fewer SNAP dollars.
However, states can only waive those requirements if both the federal government and the state have an emergency or disaster declaration in place.
Therefore, if the Biden administration does not extend the federal public health emergency declaration by October 15, those extra SNAP dollars could disappear beginning in November, 2022.
Florida SNAP Payment Schedule for August 2022 Summary
Here’s the bottom line about the Florida SNAP Payment Schedule for August 2022:
SNAP households in all counties in Florida should have their SNAP deposits between August 1st – August 28th.
