To continue to help with the high cost of groceries, all Michigan families eligible for food assistance can again expect extra help this month ahead of the holidays.

Michigan families receiving the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as food stamps, will receive at least $95 more in December, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) announced Tuesday.

Additional food assistance for eligible families will help more than 1.3 million Michiganders in more than 700,000 households, MDHHS said in a news release.

“This extra $95 will help Michiganders feed their families during the holiday season,” Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said in the release. “I will continue to work with our partners at the federal and state levels so that residents can keep their hard-earned dollars to pay for other critical household expenses.”
