Extra 3SquaresVT Food Benefits in July & August
The Department for Children and Families (DCF) announced today that many 3SquaresVT households will get a higher benefit in July and August. This extra help is part of the federal Coronavirus Relief Bill. It will not permanently change a household’s monthly benefit. It is a temporary increase to help during the health crisis.
Households already getting the maximum 3SquaresVT benefit, or a zero benefit, will not get an increase. Everyone else will get an increase that brings them to the maximum benefit for their household size.
- 1 person = $194
- 2 people = $355
- 3 people = $509
- 4 people = $646
- 5 people = $768
- Each additional person = +$146
3SquaresVT households don’t need to do anything to get the increased benefit. If eligible, they’ll automatically get it the same way they get their benefits now: on an EBT card, through direct deposit or by check.
|If Eligible:||Benefit Will Be Available:|
|In June 2020||On July 16 by EBT, July 19 by direct deposit, or when check arrives|
|In July 2020||On August 15 by EBT, August 18 by direct deposit, or when check arrives|
