The COVID-19 Pandemic affected many in the state of Texas. To assist those impacted by the disease, Texas implemented various policies. One of the polices is know as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, otherwise known as SNAP.

According to release from the state, SNAP is intended to help those in the Lone Star State buy items, such as food or seeds. There are certain guidelines for the policy in regards to how one qualifies for the benefit itself.

Individuals in Texas also will, at points, need to renew these benefits. But beginning after October of 2023, changes will be in place regarding the continuation of a Texan receiving the benefits.
