Just a friendly reminder that the 2009 Recovery Act’s temporary boost to Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits ended today and Hamilton County food assistance recipients will see a reduction in their monthly allotment.
The amount of your reduction will vary depending on family size and such. For example, a family of four will lose about $36 a month. Please visit our website for more detail: https://www.hcjfs.org/Demo/services/foodstamps/FSReduction.htm
Families were receiving the extra amount as part of a stimulus package the federal government put together in the face of a faltering economy. Likewise, the decision was made at the federal level to stop the extra payments.
Thank you for your understanding and patience.
