Additional Emergency Food Assistance Benefits Related to the Pandemic to be Issued

All Michigan families who are eligible for food assistance benefits are receiving an additional monthly payment in August in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) announced today. 

Eligible families do not need to re-apply to receive the additional benefits. People who receive food assistance can check their benefits balance on their Michigan Bridge Card by visiting the Michigan Bridges website or calling a consumer service representative toll-free at 888.678.8914. They can ask questions about the additional benefits by calling or emailing their caseworker.

Customer service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Spanish and Arabic service is available. If you are deaf, deafblind, or hard of hearing or speech-impaired, call the Michigan Relay Center at 7-1-1. 

More information is available from the MDHHS by viewing the press release in its entirety.
