Supplemental SNAP Benefits

Supplemental SNAP application deadline was Friday, June 24!

If you live in one of the 12 towns hit by the tornados and storms June 1, 2011, you may be able to get the difference between your regular June SNAP regular payment
and the maximum SNAP payment for a household your size.

Apply for this benefit
by June 24 by visiting one of DTA offices or the Monson/Palmer center.

If you live in  Brimfield,
Monson, and Wilbraham (but, not Brookfield) DTA will add supplemental
benefits to your EBT account by June 23, automatically.  You do  not need to do anything to get the supplemental payment.
