Emergency Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program food benefits have been extended for November.  

Governor Greg Abbott’s Office announced the extension Tuesday morning.  

Texas Health and Human Services Commission will provide more than $310 million in emergency SNAP assistance to help an estimated 1.5 million Texas households.  

The Health and Human Services Commission received federal approval from the United States Department of Agriculture to extend the maximum allowable SNAP benefits based on family size, according to a news release from Abbott’s office.  

Recipients should see the allotment hit their accounts by the end of November.  

SNAP is a federal program administered by HHSC to provide food assistance to eligible low-income households in Texas.  

Those interested in applying for SNAP or Medicaid can do so at YourTexasBenefits.com. Texans who already have them can check them online or through the Your Texas Benefits mobile app.
