We want to ensure that the 585,000 Hoosiers receiving SNAP benefits understand that:
1) These benefits are what they would receive for the month of February and are currently available to them to use;
2) No additional SNAP benefits will be disbursed in February;
3) It is unclear at this time whether or how SNAP benefits could be disbursed in March if the government shutdown does not end by that time;
4) If and when they need additional food assistance please contact 2-1-1 for information about pantries and programs near to them.
