COVID-19 Info  COVID Dashboard

During the COVID-19 pandemic, U.S. Congress authorized emergency allotments to help meet food needs. The emergency allotments were temporary and will end in March 2023, decreasing the total amount of benefits each month for SNAP households in Colorado.

This change can have a significant impact on many SNAP families. To help reduce the impact on households, families can follow these suggestions:

 

  • If able to, roll over EBT benefits to the next month. This may help “cushion” the impact of the reduction in benefits. 
  • Stock up on non-perishable items now, while households have the additional benefits. Click on this link for tips on stocking your pantry: EnglishSpanish
  • Stretch food ingredients and plan to use them in more than one meal. This helps to save money and reduce food waste. Click for more tips: English; Spanish
  • Consider freezing your produce to make fruit and vegetables last longer English; Spanish
  • Look at the Unit Prices to compare similar products at the grocery store in English; Spanish

If you or someone you know needs help with food resources, you can visit https://www.foodpantries.org/st/colorado to find the closest food pantry to you. 

SNAP participants can call their local county human services office for questions about their benefits.
