Note: During the COVID-19 public health emergency, households that qualify for SNAP will get the maximum benefit for their household size, even if the math results are lower.  That is due to federal law change in March 2020 allowing states to give an emergency supplement to "top off" the SNAP benefit to the maximum level.  In MA, the SNAP emergency supplement is typically issued the first few days of the month following the benefit issuance. For example, the October emergency supplement will be issued November 1 or 2.
