March and April 2019 SNAP Benefits
Due to the partial government shutdown, most February 2019 SNAP benefits were issued early, during the month of January. In order to shorten the amount of time between the February, March, and April benefit issuance dates, MDHS has made adjustments to our normal issuance schedule. MDHS will issue ALL March and April 2019 benefits as follows:
- March 2019 issuance date for ALL clients: March 4th, 2019.
- April 2019 issuance date for ALL clients: April 12th, 2019.
Once issued and available on your EBT card, your SNAP benefits are available for food purchases for one year after the date they are issued. You do not have to spend the entire benefit amount during the month it is issued.
