ALERT: March SNAP will be issued early to most SNAP households!
Submitted by FoodSNAP on 02/16/2019 - 7:46am.
We wanted to share some updated information with you all before the long weekend.
Thankfully, we are not in danger of another shutdown!
However, there will be a change to March SNAP. DTA will be issuing SNAP to the majority of households before March 1 and March 4. This means most people will get their SNAP a few days early! April SNAP will be issued on a normal schedule (between April 1 & 14th).
DTA is doing this to help households with the long delay between getting SNAP early in January and March. This might be confusing for families - but it is a good thing!!
See attached flier from MLRI, the Food Banks, and Project Bread - updated to reflect this change for March.
We will send out the Spanish language version of the attached and more information on Tuesday. Please feel free to distribute the attached in the meantime.
