Will You Get an Additional SNAP Payment? Find Out!

Families who receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits may also get an additional SNAP payment this month to help with food while children are at home amid COVID-19. However, if a family already receives the maximum benefit for their household size, they will not receive an extra payment.

Additionally, if a family meets guidelines for reduced or free lunch but not SNAP benefits, they will receive a debit card with $5.70 for each missed day of school for each school age child who is registered and attending school within their respective school district. These Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) cards will be sent directly to eligible families at the addresses their school districts have on record. Families will not have to complete paperwork to receive this benefit, as their school districts will handle all requirements.
