Government Shutdown Resources

The government shutdown has resulted in some recent changes to SNAP.

  • Instead of getting SNAP in February, you will get it early – between January 17 & 20th .
  • The Department of Transitional Assistance (DTA) will NOT be issuing SNAP again in February.
  • If DTA needs paperwork to approve your SNAP or keep your SNAP case open, get it to DTA as quickly as possible.
  • If you do not get SNAP on your EBT card between January 17 and 20th or you have questions for DTA, call 1-877-382-2363. There may be long wait times.
  • For up to date information from DTA on the shutdown and its impact on SNAP, go to: Mass.gov/DTA
