February 2023 will be the Final Month for FNS Emergency Allotments.
The COVID pandemic Emergency Allotments (also known as Maximum Allotments), that FNS participants have received throughout the pandemic are ending February 2023. Effective March 2023 the FNS Food Stamps benefits will return to regular allotments, meaning that starting in March 2023 the Food Stamp benefit (allotment) you receive will only be your initial allotment each month (the amount you receive between the 1st and 21st of the month).
For more information regarding the end of the Emergency Allotments visit the NC department of health and human services website at www.ncdhhs.gov/fns.
See the flyers linked below for information regarding assistance with managing the transition back to normal allotments.
