Food stamps: Alaska February SNAP benefits worth up to $3,487 arrive for all residents in nine days

Every Alaska household receiving benefits from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program will collect February payments in nine days.

Alaska sends payments to every SNAP-participating household, regardless of case number or last name, on the 1st of each month. North Dakota, Rhode Island, and Vermont will also send out all payments on Feb. 1.

About 12% of the state’s population, or 92,100 people, receive food stamps in Alaska. The average payment per Alaskan household member per month is $271.

In Alaska, households are split into three regions: Urban, Rural I, and Rural II. Each region produces a different maximum monthly payment.

“Urban” region households will receive a maximum payment of $374 for a household of one, $1,248 for a household of four, and $2,246 for a household of eight.
