February EBT food benefits available in January - Budget Accordingly


January 24, 2019

OLYMPIA – Due to the partial federal government shutdown, DSHS has announced that most clients will receive their basic food benefits for February by Jan. 20. This is being done to minimize the potential impact of any lapse in funding because of the federal government shutdown.

SNAP recipients normally see monthly benefits arrive on their Electronic Benefits Cards (EBT cards) anywhere from the first of the month to the 20th. DSHS is urging clients who receive February benefits early to budget carefully.

At this time, if the shutdown does not end by March, it is unclear of the impacts, but DSHS does acknowledge there could be some disruption in programs and services, according to a statement issued by DSHS.

Updates will be available on the DSHS website along with its Facebook and Twitter accounts.
