The state of emergency expiration Tuesday also sparked the end of emergency benefits for some state programs. Oklahoma's Department of Human Services announced emergency allotments for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, is ending soon.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture approved maximum monthly allotments for the food assistance program's members on April 1, 2020. As a result of Gov. Stitt rescinding the state of emergency, those emergency allocations now end July 1.
Also, a SNAP benefit increase that provides individuals about $26 per month will continue through September, according to OKDHS. To learn more about SNAP or sign up for the program, visit the OKDHS website.
