MLRI's revised and simplified online calculator gives you the monthly SNAP benefits amount a household typically receives based on their countable income and expenses.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all households eligible for a SNAP benefit receive the maximum SNAP amount for their household size (if regular SNAP is less than the maximum grant, the rest is issued via a supplemental payment). Also, effective January to June 2021 SNAP benefit amounts are increased by 15%. This calculator includes the 15% boost but not the supplement. DTA pays out the supplement and the 15% boost on the second business day of each month (often a different date than the SNAP household’s regular issuance date).
