The U.S. Department of Agriculture Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) has approved emergency benefits for August. Starting today, August 21, additional benefits will be loaded onto current SNAP EBT cards. Please note, under federal law, households already receiving the max SNAP amount for their household size will not receive additional benefits.

Once applicants are eligible for August benefits, they will receive their supplements on a rolling weekly basis. For more details on SNAP household benefits click, here.
