SNAP Calendar May 2024: Overview

More than 40 million low-income people receive food assistance through SNAP, formerly known as food stamps, one of the biggest social assistance programs in the country. Nonetheless, there are significant regional variations in the type of assistance provided and the individuals who are eligible for it.

The US government’s Department of Agriculture is in charge of starting and directing this program. State agencies manage and disburse SNAP Benefits that go by several titles, such as the Department of Social Services or the Department of Human Services.

Some states stretch out the distribution dates to avoid burdening retailers and to ensure that benefits are available to recipients equally throughout the month.
