In just nine days, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is set to issue payments in Texas for the month of August, offering vital support to eligible recipients. The payments, which can go as high as $1,691, will be disbursed by mid-August, with distribution taking place through the first 10 business days of the month.
The amount received through the SNAP program is determined by the size of the household. Single households will receive $281, while larger eight-member households can expect the maximum amount of $1,691, as confirmed by Texas’s Health and Human Services Commission website.
To ensure efficient and accurate payment disbursement, SNAP recipients will receive funds based on the last digit of their Eligibility Determination Group number. The funds will be loaded onto the Lone Star Card, Texas’s version of an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card.

It is important to note that Texas mandates certain work rules for SNAP recipients between the ages of 16 and 59. Participants must be actively employed, seeking employment, or engaged in an approved work program. Quitting a job without a valid reason may affect eligibility for SNAP benefits.
SNAP benefits are exclusively designated for the purchase of food and nonalcoholic beverages, with specific guidelines applicable across all states, including Washington, D.C., albeit with slight variations.
The SNAP program plays a crucial role in providing essential assistance to eligible individuals and families, ensuring access to nutritious food and improving overall well-being. Texas’s commitment to supporting its citizens through this program serves as a significant resource for those in need.
As the state continues to prioritize its residents’ welfare, recipients are urged to stay informed about the specific guidelines and requirements to ensure a seamless experience with the SNAP program.
