On April 1, a number of resources that offered vital assistance to our most vulnerable community members came to an end or ended expanded eligibility.
Free Bus Services in Connecticut
Bus fares for all buses and ADA paratransit in Connecticut have returned
Federal restrictions prevent the state from extending this benefit for more than a year
SNAP Bump Payments and Automatic Determination
Families will no longer receive the additional pandemic-related payment in the middle of the month
Redeterminations restarted and will occur every 6 months
DSS does not have any control over when these benefits end because funding was provided under federal legislation
HUSKY Continuous Coverage
Medicaid enrollees will again have to provide proof of eligibility annually
If you or a loved one were utilizing any of these resources and are now experiencing a disruption in vital care, please contact me HERE. My office and I will work to provide additional resources that may be able to offer you the necessary assistance.
Please feel free to share this information with anyone you believe needs additional assistance.
