Your Free Guide to the SNAP Benefits Changes

The Thrifty Food Plan, which is used to determine Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits, is frequently reevaluated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). This reevaluation is to determine if any changes are necessary to due cost of living changes. 

The maximum SNAP payments have been increased for 2024 as a result of this reevaluation. It is expected that maximum benefits will likely continue to increase as the cost of living increases.

You can view the maximum SNAP benefits by household size below for 2024.
