TALLAHASSEE - On Nov. 1, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP or food stamp) recipients will see a decrease in benefits, due to the expiration of SNAP increases provided by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA).
Current Florida SNAP customers can log into their My ACCESS account at MyFlorida.com/accessflorida to view their benefit information for the month of November.
The amount of SNAP benefits each eligible household receives depends on many factors, such as income, household size and expenses. On Nov. 1, a
family of four with no income and no other changes to their case will see a decrease in their monthly benefits of $36.
In Florida there are 3.6 million people who currently participate in the SNAP program.
