Michigan gains federal approval for second round of Pandemic-EBT benefits
Gretchen Whitmer and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) are announcing that the state has gained federal approval for a second round of Pandemic-EBT benefits. “I am happy that Michigan families will be able to count on this additional support to help them access nutritious meals during the ongoing pandemic. Households that already receive food assistance will receive the Pandemic-EBT payments on their Bridge Cards. Families that do not already receive food assistance will receive Pandemic-EBT cards in the mail that they can use to purchase food. Last school year, Michigan was the first state in the nation to gain approval of and distribute Pandemic-EBT benefits.
