ATTENTION TO ALL SNAP RECIPIENTS - Congress temporarily increased SNAP benefits due to the COVID-19 public health emergency. This means you have been getting more benefits on your EBT card each month than you normally would. The federal law has changed and no longer allows for SNAP emergency allotments. Your last SNAP emergency allotment will be in February 2023, and your benefits will be reduced to your normal amount beginning March 2023. Your normal amount is the first SNAP benefit you receive each month- the emergency allotment has been the second SNAP benefit issued at the end of the month. You will continue to receive your normal SNAP amount; only the emergency allotment SNAP benefit you received at the end of each month is stopping.

Please note that neither the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, nor your county agency, have control over this change. Because this is a federal law change, there are no fair hearing rights or fair hearing benefits on the ending of the SNAP emergency allotments.
