February Food and Nutrition Benefits to Be Issued Early Because of Federal Shutdown

Raleigh
Jan 11, 2019

Because of the federal shutdown, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has instructed states to issue February’s Food and Nutrition Services (FNS) benefits by Sunday, Jan. 20. Benefits would normally be available to families between the 3rd and 21st of February.

“We are working closely with county departments of social services and our federal partners to ensure participants and retailers have little to no interruption of FNS services due to the shutdown,” said Tara Myers, NCDHHS Deputy Secretary for Human Services.

FNS is a federal food assistance program that provides low-income families with funds to purchase food needed for a nutritional, adequate diet. Once February’s FNS funds are distributed, they will be available for use. However, participants should be aware that since there will be no FNS benefits issued in the month of February, they should plan accordingly.

Despite the federal shutdown, DHHS projects to have sufficient funds through February, not only for FNS, but also for Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) and the Women, Infants and Children program (WIC). However, if the federal shutdown continues, funding for these services could run out after February.

For more information on FNS, go to www.ncdhhs.gov/assistance/low-income-services/food-nutrition-services-food-stamps or contact your local county DSS office.

El FNS es un Programa Federal de Asistencia de Comida queproporciona a familias de bajos
ingresos fondos para comprar comida nutritiva para una dietaadecuada. Una vez que los fondos del FNS correspondientes al mes de Febrero sean distribuidos, losmismos estarán disponibles para su uso. Sin embrago, los beneficiarios deben notar que no habrá másbeneficios a depositar para el mes de Febrero y deben hacer sus planes de acuerdo a esto.

incluyendo fondos para el Programa de Asistencia Temporal paraFamilias Necesitadas (TANF), y para el Programa de Mujeres, Infantes y Niños (WIC). Pero si elParo Federal continúa, los fondos para estos programas podrían terminarse después de Febrero.
