The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) in Delaware will end its December payouts, which can be worth up to $1,751, in just 19 days. This will affect people who live in Delaware. Delaware is different because SNAP funds start being sent out on the second of every month. This gives Delaware one of the longest distribution dates in the United States. Notably, payments are sent out over the course of most of the month, and the date of payment is based on the first letter of the recipient’s last name. As the days count down to the end of December payouts, SNAP users in the First State learn how to use the state’s unique distribution method.

The card’s funds, which can’t be used to buy booze or marijuana, never run out as long as they are regularly used. Check your amount from the last time you bought groceries.
