Food Stamps: 34 states extend emergency SNAP worth $95

While millions of Americans rely on food stamps each month, many families relied heavily on the emergency allotments given due to the pandemic.

As inflation continues to rise, the cost of food does too, causing families to buy less with their food stamps.

In response, some states have extended the emergency SNAP benefits for their residents.

The funding was originally announced in April of 2021 and set to expire in Sept. of 2021.

It’s been extended numerous times since.

The latest extension was announced when the public health emergency was set to expire April 15.

This extension is for 90 additional days.
