Tennessee will provide emergency SNAP benefits in addition to the amount you already receive, related to the outbreak of COVID-19. Current SNAP households will receive the maximum SNAP allotments based on their household size for April 2020 and May 2020.

This SNAP benefit is intended to address temporary food needs for SNAP households such as yours, supports social distancing, and provides aid during the
pandemic related economic condition. You will receive these Emergency SNAP benefits (supplements) on the same day that your household receives your regular SNAP deposit. These benefits will go on your current Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card.

What do you need to do? Nothing – wait until you receive your regular SNAP benefits on your EBT card. In April and May, 2020 you will receive an extra amount in emergency benefits.

For questions pertaining to the emergency SNAP benefits, you can contact the Family Assistance Service Center at 1-866-311-4287.
