SNAP food benefits funded through February

People who depend on federally funded food benefits will continue to get them despite the government shutdown.  The Wisconsin Department of Human Services was notified that the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, is being fully funded for the immediate future.  Kewaunee County Human Services Director Bob Mattice says recipients can breathe a little bit easier.



Mattice says his office and staff members have been fielding many calls and inquiries about SNAP benefits since the shutdown began.

Would you rather see the legislature increase the gas tax and receive funding from out-of-state visitors or increase the registration fee and only get more money from Wisconsin residents?
