Most Kentucky Food Benefits Customers to Receive March Funds on Friday
FRANKFORT, Ky. (Feb. 26, 2019) –The Department for Community Based Services (DCBS), within the Cabinet, announces that most Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits for March will be distributed this Friday, March 1.
The schedule change shortens the time recipients have to wait for additional SNAP benefits following changes that had to be made last month due to the partial federal government shutdown.
Assistance benefits for these customers will be loaded to customer accounts/EBT cards. Customers can use these funds immediately at any authorized retailer.
Officials remind SNAP beneficiaries they will not receive any additional SNAP benefits for the month of March.
DCBS administers SNAP in Kentucky. At the federal level, SNAP is administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Food and Nutrition Service (FNS).
