The Department of Human Services announced a change in how SNAP benefits will be paid as a result of the partial shut down of the federal government, issuing this statement:
February’s SNAP benefits will be issued to recipients EBT cards on or before Friday, January 18.
PLEASE NOTE that the amount received will be the ENTIRE BENEFIT for the month. You will not get another payment on your scheduled February payment date. These benefits will remain on your card and can be used for up to 12 months — they do not need to be used immediately. Please take this into consideration when budgeting.
