SNAP ‘food stamp’ payments are about to get smaller. NJ lawmakers want to fund the difference.

New Jersey lawmakers are rushing to pass a bill that would prevent low-income families from seeing their monthly food benefits cut in half. Nearly 800,000 residents depend on the food stamp program known as SNAP.

Families have received at least $95 dollars in monthly SNAP benefits for the last three years due to the pandemic. But federal emergency funding for the program will end in March, which means in New Jersey, minimum monthly payments will drop to $50 dollars.
