Snap benefits are being extended into the new year.

Missouri has received approval from the USDA to provide maximum benefits for the month of January.

Households that qualify for a SNAP or Food Stamp benefits automatically get the maximum SNAP benefit amount for their household’s size.

The Family Support Division (FSD) reminds Missourians that SNAP recertification interviews are now suspended through June 2021.

That means for recertifications, SNAP households only have to submit the completed recertification form and any requested documents to continue receiving benefits.
