SNAP Benefits Changes for Fall 2013

SNAP recipients will see two changes in their benefit amounts in Fall 2013:

In October, your benefits may increase slightly due to the cost of living adjustment.

In November, you will most likely see a decrease in your benefits due to the end of the additional benefits provided by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), commonly known as the stimulus package.

The Department of Transitional Assistance (DTA) will send you a notice in November explaining the changes and your new benefit amount.

If you have any questions or would like an estimate of how your benefits may change, please call the FoodSource Hotline at 1-800-645-8333. FoodSource Hotline counselor can also provide you with information on community food resources.
