In this article, we will cover which states have been approved to issue extra SNAP EBT benefits for October 2020 including when you can expect to receive your Emergency Allotment benefits.

Emergency Allotment by State - October 2020

Pandemic SNAP Benefits (P-SNAP)

The Pandemic Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, also known as P-SNAP was implemented to help address temporary food needs caused by COVID-19. P-SNAP provides emergency allotment benefits to households based on size.

Emergency Allotment (EA) Benefits

If you are already receiving the maximum monthly benefit amount based for your household size, then you will not receive any additional benefits. If you are not receiving the maximum benefit allotment for your household size, then you will receive extra food stamp benefits to bring your total monthly benefits to the maximum.

For help, check out our example on Emergency Allotment benefits below.

For example:

If you live in a household of 3 people and are currently receiving $425 in SNAP benefits per month, then you will receive an additional $84 in food stamp benefits. That’s because the maximum allotment amount for a household of three is $509 per month.

Current Monthly SNAP Benefits – Maximum Monthly Benefit Allotment = Total Extra SNAP benefits

To find out the maximum SNAP benefit allotment for your household size, check out the table below.
