SNAP Benefits: Gov. Phil Murphy and other state authorities are raising monthly allotments

With the national release of February 2023, the temporary boost in emergency allotments to Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits instituted throughout the COVID-19 pandemic ended. Due to this, all SNAP families’ payments have been restored to standard levels by March 2023 without the bonus.

Governor Phil Murphy reportedly passed legislation in February to guarantee that each SNAP family in New Jersey gets at least $95 in benefits each month starting on March 1.

Declared Governor Murphy in a statement. “We cannot dismiss the significant effect that the federal government’s temporary increase in SNAP payments will have on families and communities across our state.


The state’s Supplemental Budget, which Governor Maura Healey introduced in January, provided $130 million to create an “offramp” from extra federal benefits and “avoid the sudden end of this program for over 630,000 Massachusetts households,” as per a statement. Individuals would receive a supplemental SNAP payment from the state for 3 months that would be 40% of their earlier federal payout.

“With fundamental initiatives like this, the Healey-Driscoll Administration wants to be a leader throughout states in providing families with an offramp to the early end of these additional benefits,” temporary health and human services Secretary Mary A. Beckman declared in a statement.
