[ARCHIVED] Emergency SNAP Extra Benefit & Medicaid/ NJ FamilyCare Announcement

Emergency SNAP Extra Benefit:

Due to a recent change in federal law, the extra temporary benefits SNAP recipients have received, known as SNAP Emergency Allotments, are ending. This means you will receive your regular SNAP benefit starting March 1, 2023. The minimum monthly SNAP benefit in New Jersey is now $95. For more information about these changes, visit the SNAP COVID page.

Medicaid/ NJ FamilyCare Announcement: 

As of January 1st, 2023, those under 19 may now apply for NJ FamilyCare regardless of their immigration status. All other requirements for NJ FamilyCare still apply.

NJ FamilyCare will start re-determining members eligibility on April 1, 2023. Members enrolled in an NJ FamilyCare program will receive mail from the State of New Jersey and/or their County Board of Social Services to confirm eligibility for healthcare coverage. Members who do not respond to NJ FamilyCare/Medicaid mail will lose their healthcare coverage.
