The governor says the COVID-19 pandemic has been economically painful for thousands of households across the state. The SNAP services help the residents to make ends meet.

Households already receiving the maximum monthly benefit and those receiving an emergency grant of less than $ 95 per month will receive a minimum allowance of $ 95.

As with the regular SNAP benefits, the additional amount can be used to purchase groceries in authorized grocery stores. Unused SNAP benefits are automatically carried over to the following month.

New York has received more than $ 2.9 billion in federal funding for the program since the pandemic began.
