SNAP Benefits Recipients in the United States: This is the Payment Schedule for March

Inicio > usa > SNAP Benefits Recipients in the United States: This is the Payment Schedule for March

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) provides significant benefits to eligible low-income families through an Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card, federal aid delivered through state governments.

The program, led by the Department of Agriculture (USDA), has differences in each state, so eligibility determination, the amount allocated, and delivery times vary by state.

Around 41 million people are enrolled in this food assistance program, which aims to reduce the rate of food poverty and nutritional deficit in several American households.

While it is the largest federal nutrition project, it is managed through state agencies via local offices, according to the regulations of each locality where it is distributed (the 50 states and the District of Columbia).

Considering these particularities, below we refer to the payment dates for SNAP beneficiaries during this month of March of the current year. In the first group, we outline the states with a date up to the next March 15th, and in a second group those that extend after the first half of the month.
