SNAP —updated 7/6/20

7/6/20 Update:
On July 2, NYS OTDA issued a notice on COVID-19 to local social service districts. Highlights include:

Six-month Extension on July Recertifications in NYC

  • USDA approved OTDA’s request for a six-month extension of the recertification period for NYC clients whose SNAP cases will expire at the end of July 2020.
  • NYC SNAP recipients who were to recertify for SNAP or TA/MA and SNAP in July will be given a six-month extension of SNAP benefits.
  • NYC SNAP participants who recertified for July and had their recertification processed by the SNAP office will not be eligible for the six-month extension.
  • The six-month extension for the July recertifications will allow NYC SNAP offices until January 31, 2021 to recertify any case that was originally scheduled to be recertified by July 31, 2020.
  • SNAP recipients will NOT be sent a notice on this extension of benefits or the new deadlines for recertification.
  • NYC SNAP offices must post flyers in English and Spanish regarding the extension of the July recertification period.
    • The flyers provide information on the new recertification dates and remind SNAP recipients that if they do not recertify by the end of the six-month extension their SNAP benefits will end.
  • There will be no further extensions of SNAP certification periods in NYC.
