Emergency SNAP Benefits Will Terminate in March

In March, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits will resume their previous levels after three years. SNAP beneficiaries received a brief boost in their payments starting in March 2020.

The increase will no longer take place, according to Broome County officials, starting in March 2023. This is a result of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2023 being approved by Congress.

A letter announcing the termination of the additional benefits will be delivered to SNAP households, and those who have provided a mobile phone number will get three text messages from the New York State Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance (OTDA).

Late January, early February, and early March will see the delivery of these messages. They will inform households that their access to emergency benefits is about to an end and provide a link to a frequently asked questions (FAQ) page.

They will call from the number 877-902-0684. Regular monthly SNAP benefits will be given to qualified beneficiaries starting in March.
