There are important changes coming for people getting food assistance.
The 15% increase in SNAP benefits provided as part of the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, are ending on September 30.
But, that doesn’t mean they will receive less help.
Starting October 1, benefits will increase due to the recent re-evaluation of the Thrifty Food Plan.
The result of these two updates occurring at the same time is that, in October, most SNAP participants will see a slight increase to their monthly benefit.
