At the beginning of each Federal fiscal year, the USDA Food and Nutrition Service adjusts SNAP maximum allotments, deductions, and income eligibility standards. These changes are based on  the cost-of-living adjustments (COLA). Most SNAP clients will experience a change in their benefit amount for October 1st. For an explanation of how COLA works, its impact and helpful tips on maximizing SNAP benefits please see the flyers below.
