Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program - SNAP

Overview



       SNAP Benefits Resume on 
                  Normal Schedule in March            

Just a note to let SNAP members know that benefits are resuming on the normal schedule in March.  Your benefits will be available on your EBT card on one of the first three days of the month, depending on the first letter of your last name: 

  •  A-F—Friday, March 1
  • G-N—Saturday, March 2
  • O-Z—Sunday, March 3 

(We had issued February benefits early, as a precautionary measure because of the partial federal government shutdown at the time.)

Connecticut currently provides SNAP services to over 384,000 individuals in 215,000 households. These numbers include over 133,000 children under the age of 18 and 65,000 individuals age 60 and older.

Thank you from the Department of Social Services.
