SNAP Households in New York to Receive Supplemental Food Benefits for September

By Hamodia Staff


NEW YORK — Governor Kathy Hochul announced that all New Yorkers enrolled in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) will receive the maximum allowable level of food benefits for September.

All households participating in SNAP — including those already at the maximum level of benefits — $835 for a household of four — will receive a supplemental payment of at least $95.

“Too many hardworking New Yorkers continue to feel the effects of the pandemic-struggling to make ends meet and put food on the table,” Governor Hochul said. “My administration will continue taking action to support our most vulnerable communities, and the $234 million in SNAP benefits announced today will provide the necessary funding to ensure hundreds of thousands of New York households avoid food insecurity.”

SNAP households in New York City should see their benefits post between September 16 and September 29, while those in counties outside of New York City should see these extra benefits post between September 13 and September 26.

The payments will be delivered directly to recipients’ existing Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) accounts and can be accessed with their existing EBT cards. All SNAP benefits can be used to purchase food at authorized retail food stores, with unused SNAP benefits automatically carried over to the following month.
