This month, more than one million Michigan residents who receive food stamps will receive an automatic $95 cash increase.
The additional assistance, which is valued at least $95, has been distributed to recipients via Bridge Cards beginning of February 19 and will be distributed until February 28.

Extra benefits would be given to 1.3 million people, or 700,000 households, according to a statement from Gov. Jerry Brown’s office.
“While case numbers and hospitalizations are improving, Michigan families still need additional assistance to put food on the table as we face growing prices,” said Governor Gretchen Whitmer. Whitmer stated.
To keep Michiganders first, we’ll keep putting money in people’s wallets, decreasing costs for families, and boosting our economy.”
Families that are eligible for the additional help are not required to apply for it, and it will be added to their debit cards as a separate payment.
When Covid was declared a pandemic in April 2020, some Michigan citizens began receiving increased support. Every eligible SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) household will get additional payments in May of 2021.
