People using food stamps will notice more money on their SNAP cards this month.

The amount of money people can use for food on their SNAP cards will go up; this increase is based on the cost of living.

This change in benefits happens once a year and is dependent on the economy.

Those benefits will reduce again in November.

Food stamp benefits aren't being affected by the government shut down.
