Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) Update

February 28, 2023
As you are aware, during the pandemic extra Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits have been available each month to help families buy food (minimum of extra $95/month per household). Due to recent action by the federal government, these benefits are ending February 2023. This means that over 640,000 households in Massachusetts will receive their last extra federal SNAP payment next Thursday March 2, 2023.

Help spread the word: join DTA’s Twitter Chat using hashtag #BoostYourSNAPMA Tuesday, February 28 at 2pm EST
    • Attached is a toolkit you can use in 7 languages to join the online conversation.
    • DTA will be asking questions from 2-3pm – you can use the sample tweets or your own to help spread awareness on how residents can get the most out of their SNAP benefits now and be connected to local resources.
    • Make sure to use #BoostYourSNAPMA so DTA and other organizations can help amplify your posts.
    • Please share the toolkit and twitter chat information with your partners/stakeholders as well

Reminder that outreach materials are available in 16 languages - including flyers, text/email/robocall templates and social media posts, as well as videos in English, Spanish, and American Sign Language (ASL).
