what income qualifies for food stamps
The eligibility for food stamp benefits, now known as Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), is determined by household size, income, and assets. In general, households must meet both gross and net income limits, which are based on the Federal Poverty Line (FPL). Gross income is the total income before any deductions, while net income is the total income after subtracting allowable expenses such as rent, utilities, and child care.
For a household of one person, the 2021 gross monthly income limit is $1,354 and the net monthly income limit is $1,011. For each additional household member, the gross income limit increases by $499 and the net income limit increases by $171. For example, the gross monthly income limit for a household of four is $2,802 and the net monthly income limit is $2,159.
Keep in mind that these income limits are subject to change, and there may be additional eligibility criteria that apply in your state, so it’s best to check with your local SNAP office for the most up-to-date information.
