This fact sheet talks about food support benefits and how long single adults with no children can get them.

There were no ABAWD time limits during COVID-19. That ended May 11, 2023. Starting July 1st, you can only get 3 months of SNAP in a 36-month period.
New rule! If you are homeless, you now can get food stamps without a time limit. Tell your local county office if you become homeless.
