Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) participants receive their benefits in a lump-sum on a single day each month. States are allowed to stagger delivery of benefits over the month, with a portion of SNAP recipients receiving benefits each distribution day. States are increasingly likely to distribute SNAP benefits over a longer span of days. A new ERS data product provides distribution schedules for each State and the District of Columbia for 1998-2018.
