County Executive Pittman, Arundel Arundel County Department of Social Services Announce Summer SNAP Funding

Funding commitments from the County and the State will provide SNAP money for eligible school-aged children in June, July, August, and December

Annapolis, Maryland (May 31, 2022) – Anne Arundel County Executive Steuart Pittman and the Anne Arundel County Department of Social Services announced funding commitments today to provide all eligible school-aged children with Summer Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits for June, July, August, and December.


“Providing this benefit gives critical support to families at a time when inflation is hitting family grocery budgets hard.,” County Executive Steuart Pittman said. “By giving families extra support during a time when school is out and kids are eating at home more, we’re hoping to make it a little easier to manage this summer."


The $1.5 million from the County coupled with $280,320 from the Maryland Department of Human Services’ Family Investment Administration will cover benefits for all 17,771 eligible children between the ages of 5 to 17 years old. The funding will provide $30 to children in June, July, and August, and $10 in the month of December.


“If you’re eligible and receiving SNAP, the additional benefits will be automatically loaded onto your EBT card - you don’t need to do anything,” Department of Social Services Director Carnitra White said. “We’re hoping this will make it easier for families to meet their nutritional needs this summer.”
