The Cattaraugus County Department of Social Services has issued an emergency Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefit to households that are not already receiving the maximum benefit.

The SNAP benefit will be issued based on the maximum amount for each household's size for the months of March and April. Beginning in May, recipients will receive their SNAP benefit as a one-time payment covering both months.

Households that received the maximum benefit are not eligible for this supplemental program.
