NEW CASTLE — The Delaware Division of Social Services will issue emergency benefits for June to eligible households as part of the state’s ongoing response to the COVID-19 public health emergency.

Benefits will be issued as part of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and two cash assistance programs — Temporary Assistance for Needy Families and General Assistance. The SNAP emergency food benefit will be available on recipients’ Electronic Benefit Transfer cards Thursday. Eligible TANF and GA households will receive an emergency cash benefit check on or after Thursday.
