SNAP Benefits are Changing Soon

Why is this change happening?

This change is happening because the State and Federal Public Health Emergency declaration that was in place due to COVID-19 is ending soon. With the end of this declaration, SNAP households will see a reduction in monthly benefits to the pre-pandemic amount.
