Temporary SNAP and other food benefits increase

Temporary SNAP Increase

More food help is on the way. As part of the most recent pandemic relief package, Congress increased maximum SNAP food benefits by 15%. This increase also applies to food benefits issued through MFIP (Minnesota Family Investment Program).

For example, this means a family of four receiving a maximum allotment will get $782 in food benefits, an increase of $102.

To see how your benefits may be affected, see the section about the SNAP increase on our website at

Those who already received their benefits for January will soon receive a supplemental benefit, if eligible. Participants do not need to do anything additional to receive this increase.

This increase to the maximum amount is in effect through June.

If you have questions about your case, contact your county or tribal caseworker.
