To help with the cost of groceries, Michigan families eligible for food assistance can expect extra help this month ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday.

Michigan families receiving Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as food stamps, will receive at least $95 more this month, 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 families get a little breathing room as we enter the holiday season,” Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said in the statement. “I will continue to work with anyone at the federal and state level to help Michiganders put food on the table and keep their hard-earned dollars to pay for other critical household expenses.”
