Attention SNAP Recipients:

In 2020, Congress temporarily increased SNAP benefits due to the COVID-19 public health emergency. This means you have been getting an additional second payment of SNAP benefits on your EBT card each month in addition to your normal SNAP amount. The federal law has changed and no longer allows for SNAP emergency allotments. Your last SNAP emergency allotment will be in February 2023, and your benefits will be reduced to your normal amount beginning March 2023. Your normal amount is the first SNAP benefit you receive each month- the emergency allotment has been the second SNAP benefit issued at the end of the month.
