Indiana Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, recipients will begin receiving the maximum benefit amounts beginning this Sunday.
The Indiana Family and Social Services Administration says the additional funds are intended to help Hoosiers obtain food, and support their families, during the coronavirus pandemic.
Households already receiving the maximum benefit will not receive additional funds.
Maximum amounts per household size are as follows:
|Number in SNAP household||Maximum benefit|
|Each additional person||Add $146|
The option to provide households the maximum benefit is made available in each state by the federal Families First Coronavirus Response Act.
All new applications authorized in April will also receive the maximum allotment.
