February’s SNAP benefits have been issued early and may have shown up on EBT cards on or before January 20th. This is NOT a bonus payment; it is your February payment, which was moved up because of the federal government shutdown. Please plan your food purchases carefully, as your benefits will need to last through the end of February. Please visit this website for more information:
