Food and Nutrition Services Update
Update from DHHS regarding status of Food and Nutrition Services benefits during the shutdown.
As you may be aware, 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 issued there will not be additional benefits issued to those households in February. New applications will continue to be taken and processed.
