To qualify, the child must have been enrolled in either the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Minnesota Family Investment Program (MFIP), or Tribal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) in any month from September 2021 to May 2022.
The DHS will send a text or email to families to let them know they’re eligible. Parents will not have to take any action to receive their child’s benefits.
