Governor Kathy Hochul announced that anyone enrolled in SNAP will be receiving the maximum amount for the month of October.

Families will be getting a supplemental allotment later in the month.

Families that don’t get maximum benefits already will be getting the maximum, and families that are already at the maximum will be given $95 more dollars.
