SNAP funds begin to be sent out in The First State on the second of every month. Their distribution time is one of the longest in the country, lasting most of the month. The date that funds were sent is based on the first letters of the recipient’s last name.

The first payment for January was sent on January 2, and the last payment is due on January 23.

In Delaware, your family income shouldn’t be more than 200% of the government poverty level if you want to get SNAP funds. For example, the monthly income limit for a single person is $2,266, and the monthly income limit for a family of eight people is $7,772.

How much you get from SNAP varies on how many people live in your home. With just one person living in your home, you’ll get $291. With eight people, that amount rises to $1,751. For every extra person in a family of eight or more, an extra $219 is added.

Delaware gives out SNAP benefits through a Food First electronic benefits transfer card, which works like a bank card but only for food and drinks that don’t contain alcohol. Remember, though, that you can’t spend these funds on things like tobacco and booze that you enjoy.

There is no end date on the money on the card, which is great as long as you regularly use it. Just look at your most recent shopping bill to see how much money is left on your Delaware Food First card.

People younger than 21 who live with their parents have to apply with them.

The Food Stamp Act, which was part of President Lyndon B. Johnson’s “Great Society” plans, created SNAP in 1964. Its goal was to improve the nutrition of poor people by helping them pay for food. All fifty states and Washington, D.C. are covered by SNAP, though there are some small changes between the programmes. The biggest differences between the programmes are when and how much money is given out.
