RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Virginia has once again extended emergency SNAP benefits, ensuring families will receive the maximum amount available to them for the month of July.
The emergency SNAP benefits – which have to be approved each month before they’re deposited on EBT cards – are a result of the public health emergency declared at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. The benefits still have to be approved again each month.
The amount of SNAP benefits received depends on the size of the household, ranging from $250 for a single person to $1,504 for an eight-person household. This month’s benefits will be deposited on Saturday, July 16.
