SNAP funded through February, child nutrition through March

Amid the government shutdown, the roughly 730,000 New Jersey residents who rely on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, (SNAP, aka food stamps) will receive their full February benefits early. The benefits are being issued today.


A provision in the budget bill, which expired Dec. 21, allows the federal government to make certain payments up to 30 days after the budget's end. Families will need to budget to ensure the benefits stretch through February.

Verizon Wireless Cell Phone Customers: PLEASE READ!

What's happening

Starting on Monday, January 28, text notifications will be ending for Verizon Wireless customers who use the free Remind service.

If you have Verizon Wireless as your phone carrier: You’ll no longer receive Remind text notifications. To get messages, you’ll need to turn on smartphone or email notifications instead.

Why the Verizon fee affects free text messaging on Remind

To offer our text messaging service free of charge, Remind has always paid for each text that users receive or send. Now, Verizon is charging Remind an additional fee intended for companies that send spam over its network.

Your Remind messages aren’t spam, but that hasn’t helped resolve the issue with Verizon. The fee will increase our cost of supporting text messaging to at least 11 times our current cost—forcing us to end free Remind text messaging for the more than 7 million students, parents, and educators who have Verizon Wireless as their carrier.

What you can do

IMPORTANT: If you have a phone plan with Verizon Wireless, click here first to make sure you can still receive Remind messages on the app or by email after January 28. We need your help to keep Remind text messaging free for educators, students, and parents. Keep reading for how you can contact Verizon and ask them to #ReverseTheFee.
