The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) of the United States aims to provide cash assistance to needy Americans to guarantee their nutrition.
SNAP consists of national funds distributed each month through Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) cards.
Many businesses and stores that sell food accept EBT card payments. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) increases SNAP contributions each year based on the Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA).
On the October opening day of the previous year, the 2024 COLA was determined to increase by 3%. With this added value, Americans can charge a limit of $291.00 USD.
Two-person households pay $535.00 USD and three-person households pay $766.00 USD. Households of four members are $973.00 USD and households of five residents are $1,155.00 USD.
Homes with six occupants approach $1,386.00 USD and with seven, $1,532.00 USD. Accommodation for eight family members is $1,751.00 USD and $219.00 USD for each additional person.
