New Clients: New clients should enroll in benefits as soon as possible to meet the current federal deadline of January 30th, 12:00 pm noon. Come into one of our Boulder County offices to apply: 3460 Broadway in Boulder or 515 Coffman Street in Longmont.

All SNAP Participants :

  • You will be able to use your EBT card to purchase food as long as you have benefits on your card.
  • Plan food purchases carefully throughout January and February so your food needs are met through the partial government shutdown.
  • The early payment of February SNAP benefits is meant to help with next month’s food. No additional SNAP benefits will be added in the month of February.
  • SNAP benefits will not be issued again until March, if funds are available from the federal government.
  • We do not have any further information about March SNAP benefits at this time.
  • If you need more food resources during the partial government shutdown, we encourage you to reach out to your local food banks or community agencies in your area.
  • To find these resources in your area, please contact:
  • Colorado 211: 844-493-8255 or visit
  • Hunger Free Colorado: 855-855-4626

If you received an additional Food Assistance (SNAP) payment on your EBT card from January 16th-20th. This is not an additional payment for January. These are your February SNAP benefits.

Everyone has the right to food that’s nutritious and healthy.

In Boulder County, just like everywhere else, some people are unable to buy nutritious, healthy food for themselves and their families. Among other things, Food Assistance can help lift individuals and families out of poverty, and improve access to healthy food. Submitting an application is easy, and we’ll walk you through the process.
