October 29, 2020

Louisiana SNAP recipients who do not already receive the maximum amount for their household size will receive emergency allotments for November bringing them to the max, following a waiver approval from USDA Food and Nutrition Service. FNS also approved Louisiana's request to extend the "hot foods" waiver through Nov. 30, 2020. November will be the ninth straight month emergency allotments have been issued in Louisiana due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
