The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) has a special program called the COVID-19 Emergency Allotments (EA). This program helps households that receive SNAP benefits pay for their food needs during a public health emergency.

The government will give each household at least $95 each month and households that already get more than $95 will not get less than that. To get the extra money, states must meet certain conditions and they must report the extra money they give out separately from regular SNAP benefits. The money will end if the public health emergency ends.

Will extra PEBT 2023 SNAP benefits extend through March 2023?

States that have lost or are losing their emergency or disaster declaration can get one extra month of help with food benefits. For example, if a state’s declaration ends in February, they can get help for March. But without a renewed declaration, they can’t get help for April.

The states were granted waivers due to a public health emergency declaration by the Health and Human Services due to an outbreak of Covid-19.
