SNAP Emergency Allotments are ending on March 2, 2023
Due to federal action, the extra COVID SNAP benefits in Massachusetts end March 2, 2023. Boost your food budget with the Healthy Incentives Program (HIP)! If you get SNAP, you automatically get HIP. HIP puts money back on your EBT card up to $40, $60 or $80 a month depending on your household size when you buy produce with your SNAP from HIP vendors.
