SUBJECT: COVID-19 PANDEMIC SUPPLEMENTAL NUTRITION ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (P-SNAP)
The Families First Coronavirus Response Act allows for supplemental benefits for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, also known as Food Stamps) to be issued to eligible SNAP households. These benefits will be issued by the Family Support Division (FSD) as part of the P-SNAP program. All households eligible for SNAP will receive the maximum amount for the household size in March and April.
Note: Households that already receive the maximum allotment for their household size will not have a benefit increase.
SNAP households do not need to apply for P-SNAP. The supplemental benefit will be automatically added to the Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card.
