Due to the federal government shutdown, eligible Morris County residents will be receiving February Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits earlier that usual. If you received a SNAP benefit in January and were scheduled to receive SNAP in February, your February benefits will be available on your Families First card on Jan. 17.
This is your benefit for the entire month of February, so please budget with that in mind.
February cash assistance benefits for Work First New Jersey (WFNJ) Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) and General Assistance (GA) will be available on your Families First card on your regular date.
If you have specific questions about your case – contact the Morris County Office of Temporary Assistance.
