Food stamps: Montana April SNAP payments worth up to $1,751 to begin in 21 days

Montana’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program will begin sending its April payments, worth up to $1,751, in 21 days.

SNAP payments in Montana are distributed over five days every month, beginning on the second. April’s payments will begin on April 2. Recipients get their payments on days according to their SNAP case number, account number, Social Security number, or last name.

SNAP benefits can be used at participating locations, including farmers markets and grocery stores. The payments are automatically loaded on electronic benefits transfer cards every month.

To qualify for SNAP payments in Montana, a single-person household cannot have a net monthly income exceeding $1,215, and an eight-person household cannot have a net monthly income exceeding $4,214.

Household sizes determine recipients’ SNAP payment amounts. Single-person households receive $291 per month, while eight-person households receive up to $1,751 per month. In households larger than eight, $219 is added for each additional person.


Created through the 1964 Food Stamp Act as one of President Lyndon B. Johnson‘s Great Society programs, SNAP aims to improve the nutrition of those in poverty by providing monthly stipends.

SNAP is active across all states and Washington, D.C.
