By  | 

FRANKFORT, Ky. (WBKO) – The Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS) says most customers of SNAP will receive their February SNAP benefits in January because of the partial shutdown.

February benefits will be loaded to customer accounts/EBT cards by Sunday, Jan. 20. Customers can use these funds immediately at any authorized retailer but they will not receive more benefits for February.
