Nebraska DHHS: ACCESS Nebraska

Welcome to ACCESSNebraska


As a result of the partial federal government shutdown, USDA has directed states to provide early issuance of February SNAP benefits.  The next monthly allocation will arrive on EBT cards by January 20th. This is NOT additional funds for SNAP recipients, but an early disbursement of February benefits


The early issuance will proceed, even if the federal government shutdown ends prior to January 20.
