The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program in Texas
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) in Texas is set to issue payments worth up to $1,691 for the month of August in just nine days. This is great news for SNAP recipients in the state, as they can expect to receive their payments by mid-August.
The amount received through the program depends on the size of the household. Single households will receive $281, while eight-member households will receive the maximum amount of $1,691, as stated on the Texas Health and Human Services Commission website.
When exactly recipients will receive their payment is determined by the last digit of their Eligibility Determination Group number. These funds will be loaded onto a Lone Star Card, which is Texas’s version of an EBT card.
Work Rules and Eligibility
It’s important to note that Texas requires SNAP recipients to follow work rules if they are aged between 16 and 59. This means that participants must either be employed, actively seeking employment, or enrolled in an approved work program. Quitting a job without a valid reason is not allowed.
SNAP benefits can only be used to purchase food and nonalcoholic drinks. It’s worth mentioning that SNAP is active in all states, including Washington, D.C., with some slight variations between each.
