Governor Andrew Cuomo announced today that all Supplemental Nutrition Assitance Program (SNAP) recipients will get next month’s benefits no later than March 7, one week earlier than expected.

The early release is meant to ease the burden of those who had to stretch February’s benefits because of the federal government shutdown.

“We will not allow the abject failure of leadership in Washington to jeopardize the ability of families to put food on the table,” Governor Cuomo said. “This early release of food benefits will provide a measure of relief to New Yorkers who rely on this critical program to make ends meet.”
