I have an article on it in my signature block below. As long as the state has declared State of Emergency, or Fed has one in place, the state can apply.
NY and NJ both received maximum allotments for Oct. They need to apply for each month separately so we'll see about Nov, but most likely NY and NJ will both keep on applying as long as they're entitled to.

Any idea if the EA program (maximum allotment) will be extended for Nov in NY?

I see it approved for NJ but not yet for NY
If it benefits even just one fellow DDFer, its worth posting it.

It has been approved for NY. FNS hasn't updated their site yet, but OTDA has.
I post updates on Twitter on WhatsApp of all developments.

Someone just received in the mail a Way2Go card with $99 to help towards food, for only one child in the family.
This family also receives SNAP/EBT benefits.

1 - What is this card about and why wouldn't the money just be added to their SNAP/EBT balance?
2 - It seems like a regular debit card. Can it be used for other purchases besides food?
3 - Why did they only receive for one child in the family and not the others?
4 - Is this a one-time thing or will the card get reloaded similar to SNAP/EBT?

Thank you.

NJ.
We have since heard of others receiving this over the last few days.
The LRRC isn't familiar and suggested it may have something to do with the school attended by that child.

And also did someone in the family file for UI?
Someone filed in late March and stopped filing in early September.

NJ issued $99 P-EBT for Aug-Sep for schools that are closed or partially remote. Is that the case?

It's officially open.
Maybe some programs are closed.

Itís for the kids in school that you are eligible for school lunches- I guess this is from the summer when they didnít get the lunches. They gave this once before (June? July?) for when schools were closed in early COVID.  then it was around 400 per eligible child.

But in this case, the family received the bonus ~$400 per child back in June(?) on their EBT account and not as a separate debit card. Why the change?
Also, this new debit card was only received for one child not the others.

It's NJ P-EBT for Aug-Sep, the question is why are kids who's schools are fully open getting it?
