Important Information for Food and Nutrition (FNS/Food Stamp) Receipients

Because of the federal shutdown, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has instructed states to issue February’s Food and Nutrition Services (FNS) benefits early. On Sunday, January 20, 2019 households already receiving FNS benefits will receive their February FNS benefits that would normally be available between February 3rd and 21st. Once these benefits are issued, there will not be additional benefits issued to those households in February. New applications will continue to be taken and processed.
