Thurs 1/17 SNAP & Shutdown UPDATE - DTA robocalls, EBT retailer outages fixed, message about WIC
1. DTA making robocalls to households getting their February SNAP early
Please share this information regarding the status of the WIC Program during the federal government shutdown. We’ve been working really hard to get the message out that the WIC programs are open for business as usual. Here are the 3 points we’re trying to stress:
- Massachusetts WIC is open for all eligible families to receive program benefits and services.
- WIC food/formula benefits should continue to be redeemed at all authorized retailers.
- WIC participants should keep their appointments to continue their participation in the program.
Thanks for an assistance on this. Hopefully, this situation will be resolved soon.
