We are thrilled to share that D.C. households receiving SNAP will see their benefits temporarily increase starting in February! 

Commonly referred to as “Give SNAP a Raise,” the boost provides all SNAP recipients in D.C. with a temporary increase of up to 10% of their household’s federal maximum, on top of what they already receive. The boost is for January 1, 2024, through September 30, 2024.  

The D.C. Department of Human Services has released more information, including when the benefits increase will begin and a table of expected increase amounts. You can read more at this link
