Good news about food stamps. Thousands of families in the United States will be able to receive benefits for their children from the Summer Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), according to information reviewed by The Sun. Baltimore County in the state of Maryland approved food stamps or summer and winter food coupons worth up to $100 for children of eligible families.

Each child who qualifies in Baltimore County will receive $30 in monthly food stamp benefits during the months of June, July, and August, according to The Baltimore Sun. But that’s not all, every eligible child in the county will also receive $10 in food stamps in the month of December since this month is when winter break begins.

Although only 10,000 children were initially expected to qualify for food stamps in Baltimore in the summer and winter months, Governor Larry Hogan invested an additional $4.8 million to expand Maryland’s Summer SNAP program to benefit more families with economic needs.

Baltimore County will spend $1.2 million of its funds and will receive an additional $1.5 million in state aid. Local authorities indicated that those receiving SNAP benefits with children between the ages of 7 and 18 are automatically eligible without the need to take any additional action.

Eligibility for the SNAP program depends primarily on your income and the size of your household. That is, a family of four must have a maximum income of $36,075 before taxes to qualify, according to the Maryland program, since the conditions may vary from state to state.

But the Baltimore food stamps would not be the only summer benefits. A provision of President Joe Biden’s American Bailout Act aims to provide money for summer food benefits to more than 30 million children in the country.

The states that will extend food stamp emergency benefits for the month of May are Alabama, Colorado, Georgia, Hawaii, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Jersey, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island.

They will also receive $95 in South Carolina, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, and Wisconsin, in addition to Washington, DC. However, if your state of residence does not appear on the list, do not despair. It is still possible that the local authorities will decide to extend the aid in the coming days.
