    • As provided in the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021, the maximum SNAP benefits will increase by 15% of the June 2020 amount. This increase will remain in effect each month from January 1, 2021, until June 30, 2021. Please find more information here

Online SNAP Grocery Orders:

Amazon, Shoprite, and Walmart accept SNAP EBT payments for online orders (excluding delivery fees). View additional information here: Maryland Department of Human Services Online SNAP Flyer.

As of December 16th, 2020, EBT SNAP online payments are available at Maryland AlDI stores through purchases made using Instacart, an online grocery delivery platform. During the first 90 day launch, Instacart is waiving delivery and pickup fees on up to the first three EBT SNAP orders for each customer with an EBT card associated with the Insacart account.  

Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT): 

P-EBT provides nutrition assistance to families whose children have lost access to free or reduced-price school meals due to COVID-19 related school closures. Families will receive money on a new or existing EBT card to help make up for these lost meals. If you qualify, you will receive $5.70 per child for each school day that your child’s school is closed due to the pandemic. This is available to families regardless of immigration status.
