January SNAP Distribution Schedule

Montana administers SNAP payments throughout five days each month. As December’s disbursements kicked off on Dec. 2, January’s payments are slated for distribution from Jan. 2 to Jan. 6. The specific payment date varies based on factors such as SNAP case number, account number, Social Security number, or last name.

To be eligible for Montana SNAP payments, a single-person household must maintain a net monthly income below $1,215. Meanwhile, an eight-person household’s net monthly income should not exceed $4,214.

SNAP benefits, which can amount to $1,751 for an eight-person household, are redeemable at authorized locations, including farmers’ markets and grocery stores. These payments are automatically loaded onto an electronic benefits transfer card every month.

Historical Context of SNAP

Enacted through the 1964 Food Stamp Act as part of President Lyndon B. Johnson’s Great Society initiatives, SNAP was designed to enhance the nutrition of economically disadvantaged individuals by supplementing their food expenses.

Active across all states and Washington, D.C., SNAP operates under 51 different programs, with some variations in their implementation.

The size of the recipient’s household affects SNAP payment amounts. For instance, a single-person household receives $291 monthly, and households larger than eight individuals receive an additional $219 per person.
