The household income determines eligibility. A single-person household must earn more than $1,869 per month, and a five-person household cannot earn more than $4,465 per month in order to qualify in the SNAP payments.

In the recent published article by Washington Examiner, according to the Texas Health and Human Services Commission, SNAP payment amounts in Texas are depending on recipient household size: single households receive $281, while eight-member households receive $1,691. Families with more than eight members receive an additional $211 for each additional member.

SNAP payments are distributed in Texas within the first ten business days of each month. The final payment for September will be made on Friday. The date that recipients get their payment is determined by their eligibility determination group number.

SNAP payments in Texas are put onto a Lone Star Card, which functions as an electronic benefit transfer card. On the day the card is issued, money is immediately loaded onto it.

Work rules are in place in Texas for recipients aged 16 to 59. Participants must either work, actively seek jobs, or participate in an approved work program, and recipients are not permitted to quit their jobs without good reason.

According to The Gazette, the Food Stamp Act of 1964 established SNAP as part of President Lyndon B. Johnson’s Great Society programs. It is intended to improve low-income citizens’ nutrition by supplementing their food costs.

SNAP payments can only be used to buy food and nonalcoholic beverages. The monies cannot be used on luxury things such as tobacco or unrelated expenses.
