February Last Month For Extra SNAP Benefits

(Salem, OR) -- Extra benefits for SNAP households will end next month. Since April 2020, most people in Oregon who receive food benefits through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program have received extra emergency food benefits, because of the pandemic. February will be the final month the extra benefits will be added to EBT cards. Regular SNAP benefits will continue. Anyone needing additional help getting emergency food assistance should call 211, the Oregon Food Bank or their local Community Action Agency.
