All Michigan families who are eligible for food assistance benefits will receive additional money again this month to help deal with the escalating cost of groceries.
Payments of at least $95 per family will be made as separate deposits into recipients’ Bridge Card accounts. The additional assistance will help approximately 1.31 million Michiganders in more than 700,000 households.
The extra payment continues a process that has been in place for nearly a year for all SNAP recipients, and two years for some.
The supplemental payments must be approved on a month-by-month basis by the federal government.
