SNAP emergency allotments to be released again this month

Virginia’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, will again release emergency allotments of benefits to eligible households this month. Benefits will be automatically loaded to recipients’ EBT cards on Tuesday, according to a release from the Virginia Department of Social Services.

The emergency allotments raise existing SNAP monthly allotments to the maximum allowable, based on household size, which range from $204 for an individual to $1,224 for an eight-member household (with another $153 for each additional person beyond that).

SNAP participants with questions related to their benefits are encouraged to contact their local department of Social Services or visit to access account information.
