The September SNAP benefits distribution comes as a welcome relief for thousands of New Mexicans who have been grappling with rising food costs and economic uncertainties. This financial assistance is expected to help alleviate some of the financial burdens many households face.

The New Mexico Human Services Department (HSD) has been working tirelessly to ensure that the process runs smoothly.

Federal Pandemic Relief via SNAP

New Mexicans enrolled in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) are set to receive a much-needed financial boost this September.


According to HSD Secretary, Maria Sanchez, “We understand the hardships that many New Mexicans are facing, especially when it comes to putting food on the table. These additional SNAP benefits are designed to provide critical assistance to families and individuals during this time of need. We encourage all eligible residents to take advantage of these resources.”

The amount each household receives will vary based on factors such as household size, income, and existing SNAP benefits. On average, a family of four can expect to receive around $646, while individuals may receive up to $234. However, larger households with greater financial need could receive the maximum benefit of $1,691.

This boost in SNAP benefits is part of the federal government’s commitment to providing relief to communities affected by the ongoing challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic and its economic repercussions.

 It is anticipated that this injection of financial aid will not only support families in meeting their nutritional needs but also stimulate economic recovery within the state.

New Mexicans are encouraged to check their EBT card balances and plan their grocery shopping accordingly once the benefits are distributed. For further information and updates, individuals can visit the New Mexico Human Services Department’s official website or contact their local SNAP office.
