Nevada Welfare Division extends benefits for existing clients

Carson City March 25, 2020

For people currently enrolled in Medicaid and/or the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) the Nevada Division of Welfare and Supportive Services is providing some additional relief.

Re-determinations have been extended for at least two months on all SNAP (food stamp) and/or Medicaid cases that were scheduled to close on April 1, 2020 or May 1, 2020.

“The best way to stay informed about your case is to look online through Access Nevada” said Steve Fisher, Administrator, "we are confident that this extension will provide some breathing room for the people we serve."
