A small cost-of-living adjustment on Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits became effective Oct. 1, 2013, that may affect some SNAP recipients who are not already at the maximum benefit level for their household size. Beginning Nov. 1, some recipients may see a decrease in their benefits. Help is available for SNAP recipients affected by the benefit decrease due to the end of extra benefits provided during the recession.
More information is in a news release on the changes and help available for SNAP recipients.
