FRANKFORT, Ky. (LEX 18) –Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program participants will receive their March funds this Friday, the state reports.

The Department for Community Based Services (DCBS), within the Cabinet, announces that most Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits for March will be distributed this Friday, March 1.

Most SNAP benefits will be available Friday, Mar. 1. The schedule change shortens the time recipients have to wait for additional SNAP benefits following changes that had to be made last month due to the partial federal government shutdown.

Assistance benefits for these customers will be loaded to customer accounts/EBT cards. Customers can use these funds immediately at any authorized retailer.

Officials remind SNAP beneficiaries they will not receive any additional SNAP benefits for the month of March.
