Del. to Issue Monthly Emergency Benefits Sept. 29 to All SNAP Households, Eligible TANF, General Assistance Households

NEW CASTLE (Sept. 22, 2021) – The Delaware Division of Social Services will issue emergency benefits for September to eligible households as part of the state’s ongoing response to the COVID-19 public health crisis.

[versión en español]

Benefits will be issued as part of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and two cash assistance programs – Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) and General Assistance (GA). The SNAP emergency food benefit will be issued Wednesday, Sept. 29, and should be available on recipients’ Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) cards Thursday, Sept. 30. TANF and GA households should receive an emergency cash benefit check on or after Wednesday, Sept. 29.

All households with open SNAP cases will receive at least $95 in emergency food benefits, to be issued as follows:

  1. SNAP households receiving the maximum food benefit amount for their household size or a prorated initial benefit will receive $95 in emergency food benefits.
  2. SNAP households with a calculated emergency food benefit amount less than $95 will have their emergency benefit increased to $95.
  3. SNAP households with a calculated emergency benefit amount of $95 or more will continue to receive the calculated emergency benefit amount to increase the household’s monthly benefit up to the maximum benefit amount for their household size.

The emergency assistance for TANF and GA families will increase a household’s monthly benefit for each program up to the maximum benefit amount for their household size. Households that already receive the maximum TANF or GA benefit amount or that have a prorated benefit in the month of September are not eligible for the September emergency cash funds. The Delaware Department of Health and Social Services (DHSS) has issued emergency benefits each month to eligible households as part of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act of 2020, which was signed into law in March 2020.

“With the increased impact of COVID-19 in our state driven by the Delta variant, these emergency benefits continue to be critical to our most vulnerable residents,” said DHSS Secretary Molly Magarik. “For families who are struggling because of the economic impact of the pandemic, this emergency assistance offers continuing help in paying for food and other basic necessities. We are grateful for this ongoing emergency support.”

How the monthly emergency benefit is calculated: A household’s monthly emergency benefit equals the current maximum benefit amount for the household size minus the household’s current monthly benefit amount. For example, based on current USDA limits for SNAP benefits, if a household of one gets $100 in regular monthly benefits, that household will receive $134 in emergency benefits ($234 maximum benefit minus $100 monthly benefit). Here are the current maximum monthly benefit amounts per household size for SNAP, TANF, and General Assistance:
