To continue helping with the high cost of food, all Michigan families who are eligible again for food assistance can expect additional assistance this month before the holidays.

Michigan families receiving the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as food stamps, will receive at least $95 more in December, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) announced Tuesday.

The additional food assistance to eligible families will help more than 1.3 million Michiganders in more than 700,000 households, according to a press release from MDHHS.

“This extra $95 will help Michiganders feed their families during the holiday season,” Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said in a release. “I will continue to work with our partners at the federal and state levels to ensure residents can keep their hard-earned dollars to pay for other important household expenses.”
