Important Notice on Upcoming Decrease on All Food Stamps (SNAP) Benefits

As mandated by federal law, the 2009 Recovery Act’s temporary boost to Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits is scheduled to end on November 1, 2013.
This will result in a benefit cut for every household that receives food stamps. Benefit cuts will range depending upon household size and income. For example, the cut could be up to $29 a month for households of three.
Customers will experience this reduction starting with their food stamp benefits issued in November 2013.
