There are now about 310,000 Virginians qualified for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), who will get food stamps on February 16th. Food stamps can be added to an electronic benefit transfer card by filling out an online application through the Department of Social Services site in Virginia for those who qualify.
Other States Will Receive Further Aid
On February 16, WAVY has verified that this event will take place. Families in New York City, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and South Carolina will profit from the food insecurity in these states.
Around 1.6 million New Yorkers will get more than $2.5 billion in food stamps and additional allotments, according to the city’s governor, Kathy Hochul. In addition, he said, the families would receive an additional $95 because they do not receive SNAP assistance.
Other New Yorkers eligible for SNAP will receive food assistance through February 25, according to The Sun U.S. People outside of the city won’t receive it until February 17 at the earliest. Due to the epidemic conditions, these benefits were extended to more than two dozen states.
Pennsylvania’s approximately one million low-income households will receive the same food stamps as those in Kentucky.
North and South Carolinians Now Have Access to the Same Benefits
There will be an estimated total of 1.6 million North Carolinians and 300,000 South Carolinians who qualify for emergency assistance and food stamps.
Americans’ Thrifty Food Program
Nearly 42 million Americans are expected to benefit from TFP, which will increase the average pre-pandemic amount of SNAP payments. There will be a payment of between $36 and $157 per person, depending on the size of the family and their location. These households receive money once a month from the government. Prepaid electronic benefit transfer cards, EBT cards, or Lone Star Cards are used to transmit the funds. To boost food stamp benefits, the USDA administers the program.
