In a recent announcement, the Georgia Department of Human Services stated that from June 1, 2022, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits will be restored to their previous levels in the state.
A one-month transition period from pandemic to non-pandemic SNAP benefit levels has been approved by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) for Georgia to begin in May.
In March 2020, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act was passed by Congress in order to combat the negative economic repercussions of COVID-19 and other viruses.
This bill permitted states to ignore some qualifying rules and to increase the monthly benefits received by each SNAP household by a minimum of $95 per household.

Beginning in June, each SNAP home in Georgia will receive benefits based on the normal parameters used to determine eligibility, such as household size, income, and deductions, as well as other considerations.
As a result of this adjustment, the benefits received by each SNAP household will vary depending on their income and expenses. By visiting gateway.ga.gov, customers can report changes to their income or costs.
