If you or someone you know received SNAP benefits in October then an automatic 15% of those benefits will be added into your or their account as replacement for lost food from the early winter storm Albert.

SNAP recipients will receive an automatic 15% replacement of SNAP benefits, which will be added to EBT cards and made available next week.

SNAP recipients will also receive a replacement for the supplement issued on October 11th for Tropical Storm Irene.

Request for additional funds over the 15% replacement can be requested by calling 2-1-1 or visiting their website no later than midnight Friday, November 18th.

The amount of the 15% mass reissuance, plus the individual replacement request, cannot be more than their October benefits, including any TS Irene supplements received on Oct. 11th.
