SNAP Clients to Receive February Benefits Early
GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. — Family Services of Community Health Programs advises SNAP clients that February benefits are being distributed early.
Clients are encouraged to budget this early February payment accordingly, as future benefits may not be reloaded until after the partial government shutdown comes to an end.
SNAP is the federal government's Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program for income-eligible individuals and families. Benefits are administered by the state.
WIC (Women, Infants & Children) benefits will continue and can be accessed as usual. CHP will communicate any WIC updates to clients, as information is available.
Any South County WIC or SNAP clients needing assistance or information may contact CHP Family Services at 413-528-0457 or any other local WIC or SNAP agency.
Family Services has some emergency food available to those in need. Donations of unexpired food and baby formula are welcome at CHP's Great Barrington office at 442 Stockbridge Road.
