SNAP Max Allotments

Increased emergency SNAP benefits information

Important: the final SNAP maximum allotments will be issued the week of February 19th, 2023, which means current SNAP enrollees will see a reduction in benefits beginning in March. Visit www.boco.org/SNAPMax for details.

What you need to know

The temporary additional benefit amounts (emergency or max allotments) are ending due to the result of recent federal congressional action.

You will still receive SNAP in March, but benefits will return to regular levels, which means you will receive the first amount deposited on your card each month only.

To help reduce the impact on households, families can:

Some SNAP enrollees may also qualify for other supports such as Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), which provides financial assistance for lower-income families and individuals, and Medicaid, which is free or low-cost health and dental coverage. These programs are also administered locally by Boulder County Housing and Human Services.

Boulder County residents are also encouraged to reach out to community-based family resource centers and/or food pantries for additional food and financial supports.
