SNAP Emergency Allotments Continue through October in Maryland!

Thanks in part to the hard work and advocacy of our community, the Maryland Department of Human Services (DHS) recently announced that Emergency Allotment SNAP benefits will continue to October. The Emergency Allotments to SNAP benefits in Maryland were originally set to end on October 1st. Emergency Allotments raise existing SNAP households’ monthly benefit amount to the maximum allowable based on household size. SNAP recipients who have already received their October benefits will see the additional benefits loaded to their EBT cards by October 12th. DHS will also submit a request to USDA Food and Nutrition Service to authorize the emergency allotments on a month-to-month basis through December 2021 or until the Federal public health emergency ends. Information regarding the extension of Emergency Allotments, in English and Spanish, can be found here.
