For individuals who receive SNAP benefits: please be advised
that you will receive a higher benefit in May to help address critical food
needs related to the COVID-19 pandemic. You will receive the difference between
your regular SNAP amount and the maximum benefit for your family size. For more

NJOHSP encourages everyone to stay informed about inaccurate information and scams that have circulated on the COVID-19 pandemic. Exploitation by extremists, text messages falsely warning of a “mandatory quarantine,” misinformation spread across social media pages and websites, and an anti-US disinformation campaign driven by foreign state-sponsored media outlets are recent actions intended to cause panic and take advantage of unsuspecting residents, physically and virtually.
