Supplemental Nutrition Assistance (SNA) Benefit Decreasing
Effective for January 2013 cyclical benefits, SNA households will begin receiving the reduced SNA benefit of
$5 monthly. At the same time, the number of households receiving the SNA benefit will increase to
approximately 22,000. BEACON will automatically issue SNA benefits for each month the household is
actively receiving SNAP-only benefits and meets SNA program requirements. Please refer to Operations
Memo 2012-12 for SNA program eligibility and to respond to client inquiries about this change.
