Information from the Tompkins County Department of Social Services Regarding March SNAP Benefits

Thursday, February 21, 2019

The US Department of Agriculture will issue March 2019 Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits early.  This is to mitigate any difficulties that people may experience due to the early disbursal of February SNAP benefits due to the federal shutdown.

For March, no matter what a recipient’s normal pick up date, SNAP benefits will be made available as of March 1st. 

Tompkins County DSS anticipates that, after this, April benefits will be issued on the usual schedule; however, the Department will continue to inform the community if any future changes are anticipated. 

Currently, nothing else about SNAP has changed. All program requirements remain in place.

Any recipients who have questions or concerns should contact Tompkins County DSS at 274-5201.
