Helping Ohioans prepare for the end of SNAP emergency allotments

February 14, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Watch on-demand!

SNAP recipients in Ohio have received extra SNAP benefits since April 2020 to help cover the cost of groceries. These extra SNAP benefits are ending after February 2023, resulting in $126 million less in SNAP spending each month throughout Ohio. Join us as we discuss the impact of these cuts on Ohioans and equip human services agencies with information to ensure SNAP households get the correct benefit amount by verifying expenses like housing, childcare, and medical costs. We will also offer recommendations to local and state policymakers on how they protect food security in Ohio as extra federal resources end.
