Heat & Eat Program Ended


Despite the legislation to preserve additional SNAP benefits for participants in New Jersey's Heat & Eat program, the program has officially been ended after the Governor's veto of related budget language. Current participants in the program will begin to lose the extra benefits (an estimated $90/mo on average) as they come in for their annual recertification, or if their case file is otherwise updated (such as for a change of address). Stayed tuned for guidance on how recipients and advocates can provide documentation to retain the higher benefit levels based on utility costs.

For an in-depth discussion of the program and it's likely impact, check out this NJ Spotlight article, which quotes a number of APN members.
