Louisiana is boosting food stamp assistance for some households for a sixth month because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The state Department of Children and Family Services said people receiving food aid through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program who don't receive the maximum amount for their household size will be moved to that highest amount in August.
According to officials, the extra aid will be loaded onto the debit-style cards that food stamp recipients have on August 21.
The agency said it's the sixth consecutive month that Louisiana food stamp recipients all will receive the max amount for their households.
