2 DAYS LEFT! These States Giving Extra EBT, P-EBT, SNAP Food Stamp Benefits | Food Stamp Update 2022
As long as there’s a national public health emergency (PHE) in place — and the state has a state-level emergency declaration in place — states may choose to continue to provide monthly emergency allotments. The current PHE is set to expire on July 15. Under the Families First Response Act (the FFCRA), states with an approved extension for a covered summer period can issue P-EBT benefits no matter the student’s school status, pandemic-related absences, virtual learning days or the operating status of covered child care facilities. Pandemic waivers allowing the issuance of emergency allotments have been extended for some states through July 2022. Eligible school children and children in childcare programs may also receive temporary emergency food assistance (P-EBT) during the upcoming summer months. Emergency allotments were authorized under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act to help address temporary food needs during the pandemic for SNAP households. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, EA amounts are equal to the maximum benefit for the household size, minus their monthly base benefit.
