Texas said about 1.3 million households will benefit after the state provides more than $317.9 million in emergency Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) food benefits in June.

The money was made available after the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) allowed the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) to extend the maximum allowable amount of SNAP benefits to recipients based on family size.

All SNAP households will receive a minimum of $95 in additional emergency allotments, which should appear in recipients’ accounts by June 30.

The $317.9 million is in addition to the $6.9 billion in benefits given to Texans since the pandemic began in 2020.  The SNAP benefit program has been extended several times since.

“Texans across the Lone Star State benefit from the nutritious food made available through the extension of emergency SNAP benefits,” said Texas Governor Greg Abbott in a press release.  

SNAP is a federal program giving food assistance to eligible low-income families and individuals. 

People can apply online for SNAP and Medicaid or use the Your Texas Benefits mobile app to manage their benefits.
