How COVID-19 (coronavirus) impacts food stamp (SNAP) benefits and more.

(updated August 7, 2020)

The financial impact of the coronavirus has been devastating. To help you during this crisis, states are starting to introduce changes to food stamps (SNAP), unemployment, and other benefits.

We’ll be adding helpful information to the list of states below as we receive it.

The latest.

Coronavirus and food stamp (SNAP) benefits.

Food stamps are on the normal schedule.

There are two types of additional benefits your state may send out during this time:

  • Maximum benefits: Most states are sending out the maximum benefits for each household size. This means households in these states will receive an increase if they weren’t already receiving the max amount of benefits.
  • P-EBT: Some states are sending out additional benefits to families that are enrolled in free or reduced-price school meal programs.

We will add specific updates to the list of states below as we receive more information. These additional benefits will be automatically added to your EBT card. You don’t need to call to confirm or apply.

If you haven’t already, download the Fresh EBT app to get information about important changes and track your EBT balance: Download Fresh EBT

Coronavirus and evictions.

Many states are taking actions to protect people from evictions. If you’re facing eviction, you may be able to prevent it. Learn more and get help at justshelter.org.

Coronavirus and unemployment benefits.

Many states are expanding unemployment benefits to help workers impacted by the coronavirus, including part-time, self-employed, and gig workers. Even if you only had your job briefly, you might still qualify.

Please check with your state’s Department of Labor site in the list of states below for more information.

Coronavirus and utility bills.

Many utility companies (power, gas, water) are keeping services on for people who can’t pay their bills because of the virus.

Call your utility company directly for more information. If you’re deciding between paying a bill and buying food or essential items, call first!

You may still owe past balances.

Coronavirus and healthcare.

Some states are extending Medicaid recertifications. We will add specific updates to the list of states below as we receive more information.
