Million of Americans get help each month with food stamps to help buy food, and millions will still benefit from emergency benefits this month.
The public health emergency was supposed to expire April 15, but has been extended 90 more days.
States that had been sending their residents emergency benefits will continue to do so through April.
The funds will go directly onto their EBT card.
Emergency food stamps explained
Emergency benefits are also known as Emergency Allotments.
