Millions of Americans have benefited from emergency food stamp benefits, which will now be extended for the month of May in 20 states.
SNAP provided emergency assistance to Americans during the outbreak.
It was first announced in April 2021 and gave $1 billion every month to the USDA.
The emergency food coupons were supposed to expire in September 2021, but they’ve been renewed several times since then.
SNAP: Who will get the most money?
There must be a public health emergency to continue, which was meant to end on April 15, 2022.
It was instead extended for another 90 days.
States can continue to grant emergency benefits if they are still in a state of emergency.
