NEW CASTLE (Oct. 28, 2021) – The Delaware Division of Social Services is issuing emergency benefits for October to eligible households as part of the state’s ongoing response to the COVID-19 public health crisis.
Benefits will be issued as part of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and two cash assistance programs – Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) and General Assistance (GA). The SNAP emergency food benefits were issued Wednesday, Oct. 27, and should be available on recipients’ Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) cards Thursday, Oct. 28. TANF and GA households should receive an emergency cash benefit check on or after Oct. 27.
All households with open SNAP cases will receive at least $95 in emergency food benefits, to be issued as follows:
SNAP households receiving the maximum food benefit amount for their household size or a prorated initial benefit will receive $95 in emergency food benefits.
SNAP households with a calculated emergency food benefit amount less than $95 will have their emergency benefit increased to $95.
SNAP households with a calculated emergency benefit amount of $95 or more will continue to receive the calculated emergency benefit amount to increase the household’s monthly benefit up to the maximum benefit amount for their household size.
The emergency assistance for TANF and GA families will increase a household’s monthly benefit for each program up to the maximum benefit amount for their household size. Households that already receive the maximum TANF or GA benefit amount or that have a prorated benefit in the month of October are not eligible for the October emergency cash funds.
The Delaware Department of Health and Social Services (DHSS) has issued emergency benefits each month to eligible households as part of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act of 2020, which was signed into law in March 2020.

“Month after month, we have seen and heard how critical these emergency benefits are for vulnerable individuals and families in our state,” said DHSS Secretary Molly Magarik. “These benefits help families struggling because of the economic impact of pandemic, offering them continued support in paying for food and other necessities. We are grateful to be able to provide this even stronger safety net.”

How the monthly emergency benefit is calculated: A household’s monthly emergency benefit equals the current maximum benefit amount for the household size minus the household’s current monthly benefit amount. For example, based on current USDA limits for SNAP benefits, if a household of one gets $100 in regular monthly benefits, that household will receive $150 in emergency benefits ($250 maximum benefit minus $100 monthly benefit).
Here are the current maximum monthly benefit amounts per household size for SNAP, TANF, and General Assistance:

In addition to the emergency benefits, households will receive their regular benefits for October on the usual issuance dates.
For more information about DSS’s benefit programs in response to the pandemic, go to the division’s webpage. To apply for benefits, go to DHSS’ online application portal Delaware ASSIST or call 1-866-843-7212. To reduce the potential spread of COVID-19, clients are asked to contact the Division of Social Services by phone or online. If clients do need an in-person appointment, they are reminded that face masks are required for all state employees and visitors to state offices and facilities.
