CONCORD — The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Division of Family Assistance (DFA) is announcing upcoming changes to Food Stamp benefits.
Recipients will see two changes in their benefits this fall. On October 1, benefits increase slightly for most households to reflect the costs of living. However, on November 1, most families will see a decrease in their benefits as that's when extra funds provided by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009 will expire.
"We are reaching out to all our clients that receive food stamp benefits so that they are aware of the changes and understand how this will affect them," said DFA Director Terry Smith. "Every October the federal government adjusts food stamp benefits to reflect changes in the costs of living. What's different this year is the decrease a month later."
