Information and resources for individuals who may be affected by the ending of federal continuous coverage.
Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)
In March 2020, to offset financial uncertainty during the COVID-19 pandemic, individuals participating in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) began receiving a federal Emergency Allotment (EA) of SNAP benefits, which equaled the maximum benefit allotment for the household’s size.
In December 2022, Congress passed legislation that ends the EA after the issuance of February SNAP benefits.
Beginning in March 2023, the SNAP benefit allotment will revert to the household’s pre-pandemic dollar amount. SNAP recipients will continue to receive their regular SNAP benefits on the 5th of each month, as long as they remain eligible.
