Please no bashing but I've come across very hard times and had to apply for food stamps. I got my letter today saying I was approved for expedited benefits and am getting $298 for November. There was another column that said I was eligible for dec through April and the amount it had was $550. Now it that per month till April or for the whole time till April

I'm in CA, right after my son was born, my husband was injured extremely bad at work, and we had to do the same thing. We got emergency food stamps and it was for a half a month, then 4something a month for the first quarter, then we had to do a review to see if we were still eligible, but since my husband was able to go back to work the same month we needed to do our review, so we ended it, but, if you still qualify, you'll be able to send in the info again, and get then again. Times are hard, and if you really need it to feed your family, no judgment! It's those people who get assistance, and don't do what's supposed to be done with them, that make people angry! Good for you for doing what you need to make sure your family is taken care of.

In nm it runs every 6months. At the 6th month mark you will have to give new information.

That's probably what they mean. $550 per month, but since November is almost over you'll get $298 to finish out the month

You will be getting $550 a month in FS and you will have to renew it come April. Don't be ashamed. Do the right thing and try to get back on your feet, the right way, and in the meantime feed your family healthy and right.
