States issuing Extra SNAP Food Stamp Benefits for January 2023

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 on 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 SNAP food stamps 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 in California and are currently receiving $450 in SNAP benefits per month, then you will receive an additional $290 in food stamp benefits. That’s because the maximum allotment amount for a household of three in California is $740 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.
