If my rent has increased will my food stamps increase too?

Other answer:

probably, they count 'excess housing costs' or something to that effect…but I don't think its dollar for dollar..ie if housing goes up by 50, you don't get 50 more food stamps…only a portion of that

unlike ignorant people, I have researched this. I don't know the details, but I know they consider housing and may deduct a portion of the housing expense from income which increases the benefit.

If I had to guess, I would say SNAP would increase by about 25% of the rent increase…so that would be about $12 for a $50 rent increase

Any increase in your rent would not have a affect on your food stamp allowance.

You are speaking of two separate issues.

I hope this has been of some benefit to you, good luck.


If it is considered that you could afford to pay more rent, your food stamps
could decrease.
Unrelated. So, no.
