Temporary Healthy Bucks SNAP incentive increase

The COVID-19 pandemic has presented many challenges for farmers markets, independent farmers, and some of South Carolina’s most vulnerable residents.  In response to these challenges, the South Carolina Department of Social Services will be increasing the maximum Healthy Bucks SNAP incentive amount to $15.00 from May 15, 2020, to July 31, 2020.

The purpose of this temporary adjustment is to further combat food insecurity among SNAP recipients and to promote economic stability for Healthy Bucks vendors whose business has been adversely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
