As a result of February’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits being issued Jan. 16, due to the federal shutdown to ensure recipients received their benefits, Ohio is adjusting the March benefit issuance schedule.
Eligible SNAP families will receive 50 percent of their March benefits on Feb. 22. The rest of the benefits will be issued on the normal March issuance date.
