Governor Abbott Requests Additional SNAP Benefit Opportunities

Governor Abbott and the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) sent a letter on March 24, 2020 to the United States Department of Agriculture seeking permission for SNAP recipients to use their benefits at take out and drive-thru restaurants throughout the state as Texas continues to combat COVID-19.

“As we continue in our efforts to combat COVID-19, the state must do everything it can to make life more manageable for citizens and ensure that Texans can provide meals for their families,” said Governor Abbott. “This waiver will go a long way in doing just that. I urge the federal government to quickly approve this waiver, giving Texans another food option during this public health emergency.”
