Notice: SNAP benefits are increasing

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has revised the Thrifty Food Plan to account for modern costs associated with the standard American diet. SNAP households will see an increased amount of your regular, non-pandemic benefits beginning Oct. 1.

El Departamento de Agricultura de Estados Unidos (USDA) ha revisado el plan de Thrifty Food para incluir la subida del coste actual asociado con la dieta estándar Americana.  Su familia recibirá un aumento en sus beneficios regulares determinados por niveles antes de la pandemia comenzando el 1 de Octubre del 2021.

Frequently asked questions (English)

What is the Thrifty Food Plan (TFP)?
The TFP is developed by the United States Department of Agriculture Food & Nutrition Services and is the base for a “national standard for a nutritious diet at a minimal cost.” 

Why should we care about the TFP?
The monthly SNAP benefit is based on the TFP. This means that the dollar amount associated with a SNAP household’s monthly benefit is calculated from the TFP after other factors, such as income, household size, and expenses have already been considered for eligibility.

What has changed?
The TFP has been updated and the pre-pandemic average monthly SNAP benefit will increase by $36.24 per person per month. The actual increase that program participants will see from 9/2021 to 10/2021 will be smaller. 

When will my SNAP benefits change?
The change will begin with all October 2021 SNAP payments.

How much will benefits increase?
The average SNAP allowance will increase by $36.24 per person per month, or $1.19 per day.  For a family of four receiving the maximum benefit, they’ll get $835 a month, up from $782.

Do I qualify for the increase?
The boost should reach most of the households that are currently SNAP-eligible.

How long will I get this increase?
The newly calculated amount will be re-examined in five years and may increase again at that time. Your household amount will only change if other factors, such as your income, expenses, or household size changes.

What do I need to do to get the increased amount?
If you currently participate in SNAP you do not need to take any action. If you are not currently participating but may be eligible, apply today.

Do the new rules impact SNAP eligibility?
No. The same requirements to qualify for the benefits will remain. SNAP has rules around how much you can own in assets and earn in income to get the aid. But certain expenses, including your rent and child care costs, won’t be counted in your income.

Can I use this increase to pay off a past claim?
Yes.

Frequently asked questions (Spanish)

¿Que es el TFP?
El TFP fue desarrollado por el Departamento de Agricultura, Comida y Servicios Nutricionales de Estados Unidos.  Es una base media creada para definir el estándar nacional para una dieta nutricional y saludable a un coste ajustado. 

¿Por qué importa el TFP?
El beneficio SNAP mensual depende en parte del TFP.  Esto significa que la cantidad mensual en forma de dólares que una familia recibe por sus beneficios de SNAP es calculado utilizando el TFP después de considerar calificaciones de otros factores incluyendo ingresos, gastos, y el número de personas que forman parte su familia. 

¿Que ha cambiado?
El TFP ha sido actualizado y los beneficios de SNAP antes de la pandemia refleja un aumento de $36.24 por persona y por mes.  Estos aumentos de beneficios serán visiblemente menores durante Septiembre y Octubre del 2021. 

¿Cuando cambiara mis beneficios de SNAP?
El cambio en sus beneficios de SNAP comenzará con los pagos de Octubre del 2021. 

¿Por cuánto subirán los beneficios de SNAP?
La media alocación de SNAP refleja un aumento de $36.24 por persona, y por mes o $1.19 por día.  Para una familia de cuatro personas cualificada para recibir los beneficios máximos serían $835 al mes de $782. 

¿Califico para el aumento?
El aumento será aplicado para la mayoría de las familias que actualmente califican para recibir beneficios SNAP.

¿Por cuánto tiempo recibiré el aumento de beneficios SNAP?
 La nueva cantidad calculada será revisada dentro de cinco años y podría volver a aumentar en ese momento.  La cantidad de beneficios recibida por su familia solo puede cambiar si existen cambios en sus ingresos, gastos, o en el número de personas de su familia.

¿Que debo de hacer para recibir el aumento de beneficios SNAP?
Si ya participas en beneficios SNAP no tienes que tomar acción.  Si aún no participas en beneficios SNAP y calificas, Solicite aquí.

¿Las nuevas regulaciones impactan la cualificación de beneficios SNAP?
No. Los mismos requisitos para cualificar permanecen en rigor. SNAP sigue teniendo reglas referente a cuantos bienes e ingresos posees para recibir beneficios. Pero, hay ciertos gastos incluyendo el dinero del alquiler y para el cuidado de sus hijos que no será calculado como ingreso. 

¿ Puedo usar este aumento para pagar un reclamo pasado?
Si.

About the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) helps low-income households in Colorado purchase food. It provides a monthly benefit that helps families and individuals buy the food they need for good health.

The benefit is provided based on income, resources and the number of individuals in the household. Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) cards are used to receive the benefit and can be used similar to debit cards at participating food stores. The benefit can be doubled in value by shopping at participating markets and food stores that support the Double Up Food Bucks program.

SNAP is part of a federal nutrition program to help low-income households purchase food. County human services departments are responsible for determining eligibility and authorizing SNAP. 

SNAP is good for the local economy. Households participating in SNAP spend more on food. By providing more resources for food, SNAP helps free up cash for households with low-income to buy other essential items, like diapers and medication. As a result, retail sales increase, benefiting stores that sell both food and non-food items.

What you need to know

Who is eligible for SNAP?

Those who qualify for SNAP include persons who may meet one of the following options:

  • Work for low wages
  • Are unemployed or work part-time
  • Receive TANF, SSI or other assistance payments

  • Are children
  • Adults ages 18 to 49 who have no children in their home (known as ABAWDs, able-bodied adults without dependents)

Individuals, couples and families may qualify if their income is less than 200% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL).

How are SNAP funds issued?

SNAP benefits are issued on an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card, also known as the Colorado Quest Card. It looks like a credit or bank card and can be used at any authorized store across the country that has the EBT or Quest Card logo.

Benefits are deposited into the EBT account on the same day each month, even if it falls on a weekend or holiday. A personal identification number (PIN) is required to access benefits on the EBT account. The PIN is set by the cardholder and is what keeps the benefits safe. The EBT card does not have an expiration date.

Learn more about PIN safety and how to use your EBT card by reading the EBT card brochure (English or Spanish), by calling EBT Customer Service at 1.888.328.2656 (1.800.659.2656 — TTY), or by going to the Colorado EBT page.

  • Breads and cereals
  • Fruits and vegetables
  • Meats, fish and poultry
  • Dairy products
  • Seeds and plants which produce food for the household to eat
  • Soft drinks, candy, cookies, snack crackers, and ice cream
  • Seafood, steak, and bakery cakes are also food items and are therefore eligible

How do I know if I'm an ABAWD?

A person is considered an ABAWD — an able-bodied adult without dependents — if they are between the ages of 18 through 49 and are not disabled or living with a child under the age of 18 in their SNAP household.

Requirements for ABAWDs

People who are ABAWDs must do certain work-related activities to remain eligible for SNAP. They must be working or doing approved work activities for at least 80 hours per month. This includes paid work, unpaid work, and in-kind work. In-kind work is working in exchange for a service, such as working off rent. The county can help connect ABAWDs with local work opportunities in the area in order to meet the work requirement.

Important information about the Colorado SNAP ABAWD time limit

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the SNAP ABAWD time limit has been temporarily suspended statewide beginning April 1, 2020, until further notice. During this time, ABAWDs will not be required to meet the work requirement to keep receiving SNAP. For more information on COVID-19 and food assistance, visit this page.

Nutrition education is available for SNAP recipients through Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education. SNAP-Ed teaches participants how to buy and prepare healthy foods on a budget and motivates them to increase physical activity.

CDHS's Division of Food and Energy Assistance provides various types of data to the public and our partners, including SNAP application volume, Colorado's Program Access Index history, and various other SNAP statistics. Additional data is available by request.

Employment and training is available through Employment First. Employment First promotes self-sufficiency by preparing SNAP recipients for employment through job-seeking skills training, work experience and job-search support activities.

Texas families without access to school meals to get 2nd round of food assistance

Texas families with kids who lost access to free or reduced-price school meals due to COVID-19 will get a second round of federal assistance.

On Thursday, Gov. Greg Abbott announced the Texas Health and Human Services Commission received approval from the U.S. Department of Agriculture to provide more than $2.5 billion in Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) to about 3.7 million eligible children in the state. Each child will receive up to $1,200 for the school year, depending on the school and the days they were learning virtually.

The money can be used the same way SNAP food benefits are used to pay for groceries. Most families that receive SNAP benefits do not need to apply.

Families who have children certified for free or reduced-price meals, or attended a school defined as a Community Eligibility Provision or Provision II school and received meals at no cost, during the 2020-2021 school year but did not receive SNAP benefits will need to apply.

According to a release from Gov. Abbott, last summer, the first round of P-EBT provided more than $1 billion in food benefits to more than three million kids.

For more details, visit the Health and Human Services' website.

Governor Abbott, HHSC announce extension of emergency SNAP benefits for March

Governor Greg Abbott and the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) will provide approximately $229 million in emergency Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) food benefits for the month of March as the state continues its response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Providing emergency SNAP benefits is critical to our state's ongoing COVID-19 response because it ensures that Texas families can continue to put healthy meals on the table," said Governor Abbott. "I thank the USDA for their continued partnership as we ensure access to healthy food for Texans in need."

"We are proud of the work Texans do each day in fighting this pandemic and these additional food benefits will help SNAP recipients purchase healthy foods for their families," said Texas HHS Access and Eligibility Services Deputy Executive Commissioner Wayne Salter.

HHSC received federal approval from the U.S. Department of Agriculture to extend the maximum, allowable amount of SNAP benefits to recipients based on family size.

The emergency March allotments are in addition to the more than $2.5 billion in benefits previously provided to Texans since April 2020.

Recipients will also continue to receive a 15 percent increase in their total benefits, which will continue monthly until June 2021.

This additional 15 percent increase and the emergency allotment amount should appear in recipients’ accounts by March 31, according to Governor Abbott.

Governor Abbott previously announced the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) received approval to allow Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) recipients to apply for replacement benefits for food lost or destroyed due to the severe winter weather that impacted the state.

More information on that can be found HERE.

Administered by HHSC, SNAP is a federal program that provides food assistance to approximately 1.6 million eligible low-income families and individuals in Texas. Texans in need can apply for benefits, including SNAP and Medicaid, at YourTexasBenefits.com [lnks.gd] or use the Your Texas Benefits mobile app to manage their benefits.
