Georgia SNAP Recipients to Receive August Benefits in One Day
Great news for Georgia residents who rely on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)! The Georgia Department of Human Resources has announced that SNAP benefits for the month of August will be distributed in just one day.
From August 5th to August 23rd, the Georgia Department of Human Resources will be sending out SNAP payments to eligible recipients. The specific payment dates will depend on the last two digits of each beneficiary’s client ID.
- Client IDs ending in 00-09: Benefits issued on the 5th
- Client IDs ending in 10-19: Benefits issued on the 7th
- …and so on, until…
- Client IDs ending in 90-99: Benefits issued on the 23rd
The amount of SNAP benefits received by Georgia residents will vary based on factors such as assets, household size, and income. On average, each household member in Georgia receives $188 per month. The maximum benefit for a household of four is $939, with an additional $211 added for each member beyond eight.
To qualify for the program, the maximum annual income is $18,954 for a household of one and $45,682 for a household of five. It’s worth noting that approximately 15% of Georgia’s population currently receives SNAP benefits.
SNAP recipients in Georgia can use their benefits to purchase eligible food items at participating grocery or convenience stores. This is made possible through an electronic benefit transfer card, which functions similarly to a debit card.
Last month, there were delays in SNAP benefit distribution due to staffing shortages at the Georgia Department of Human Resources. However, the department has taken steps to address these issues and ensure a smoother process for both first-time and renewal applications.
If you are a Georgia resident interested in applying for SNAP benefits, you can visit the Georgia Department of Human Services website under the Division of Family and Children Services section. Alternatively, you can call 1-877-423-4746 for more information.
