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 mn.gov/dhs/snap-changes/.
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.
