Note for Snap Users

Note for Snap Users

March benefits are still vulnerable to the federal shutdown. If the government reopens by March, people will get their March benefits when they normally would. No additional benefits will be added in February. USDA is encouraging all participating SNAP recipients to plan their purchases carefully.
