SNAP Benefit Changes
Starting in October, almost all SNAP households will see a modest increase in their SNAP benefits.
The asset/resource limits are $5,000 for most households. Assets include bank accounts, cash, real estate, personal property, vehicles, etc. The household’s home and surrounding lot, household goods and personal belongings and life insurance policies are not counted as assets in the SNAP program. Households must pass a gross income test (130% of poverty) to qualify for benefits. The gross income is per household size and based on the gross monthly income received by all household members. *Numbers below are for a family of 4.
- Monthly gross income limit: $2,871
- Maximum net monthly income limit: $2,209
- Maximum monthly SNAP allotment: $835
* Income eligibility standards for FY 2022 (effective October 1, 2021, through September 30, 2022)
