Governor Abbott has approved the issuance of extra food stamps for the month of September 2022. Here is the press release from the Texas Governor’s website.

Emergency allotment benefits will be deposited by September 30th, according to Governor Abbott’s message. The minimum extra SNAP benefits will be $95. So if you live in Texas and need help with groceries, be sure to check your food stamp balance in September.

Editor’s Note: The September 30th deposit schedule is just an estimate, not an exact date of when you will receive your benefits. I have spoken to food stamp recipients who have stated that Texas has issued benefits late in recent months, so just keep this in mind when waiting for your extra food stamps to be deposited into your account.

Extra Food Stamp For Those That Are Newly Eligible

If you are newly eligible for SNAP benefits in Texas, you can expect to receive your extra food stamps in the month following your eligibility date. For instance, if you qualify for SNAP benefits in September, you can expect to receive your extra food stamp benefits in October.
