Tennessee to Split June Benefits into Two Payments for SNAP Participants

NASHVILLE – In response to the early May issuance payment that occurred on April 20, 2024, the Tennessee Department of Human Services (TDHS) announced today that June 2024 benefits will be split into two payments for customers who received their May benefits early and participate in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). This is a one-time schedule adjustment for June benefits only to ensure Tennessee families receive necessary assistance following the early issuance payment for May benefits.

The first benefit distribution for June benefits will take place on May 24, 2024. The second benefit distribution will take place in June on the standard monthly distribution date. TDHS, in compliance with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Food and Nutrition Service, is required to notify all customers of this change even if it does not affect them directly.

Regular deposit schedules will resume in July 2024. Customers are encouraged to check their EBT card balance by calling 888-997-9444 or accessing the One DHS Customer portal at Valuable resources on budgeting and meal planning can also be found here:

Please be aware that this notification does not apply to customers found ineligible for benefits in June.
