Erie County Executive addresses food stamp funding concerns

SNAP update

Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz addressed residents’ concerns about food stamp funding, as the federal government remains shut down.

According to him, 13 local projects that get community block grants are on hold due to the shutdown.

It was announced on Tuesday that SNAP benefits have been extended through the end of February, but county officials say they’re not sure if they can process applications after January 21.
