Supplemental support will be added to the recipients’ benefits based on a maximum size allotment scale. The supplemental allotments will be calculated as the difference between the households’ regular allotment and the maximum allotment.

For households whose difference is less than $95, they’ll receive the minimum $95 supplement. Households who are already receiving the maximum monthly allotment for their household size in the month of June 2021, they’ll get a $95 supplement.

This is a breakdown of how the payments work:

  • Household of 1 gets $234
  • Household of 2 gets $430
  • 3 get $616
  • 4 get $782
  • 5 get $929
  • 6 get $1,114
  • 7 get $1,232
