Due to recent action by Congress, the SNAP Emergency Allotments are slated to end in February 2023, which means that SNAP households in Massachusetts will receive their last supplemental payment on March 2, 2023. SNAP emergency allotments have allowed households to receive the maximum SNAP benefit amount for their household size, as well as an additional $95 for those households already receiving the maximum amount. Additionally, adjustments based on the Social Security Administration Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA) increases will go into effect for regular monthly SNAP benefits in February. For additional information visit mass.gov/ExtraCOVIDSNAP.

There are other existing options that may allow SNAP households to increase in their normal monthly SNAP benefits. These include:

  • If anyone in the SNAP household is 60 or older or receives a disability-based benefit, tell DTA about medical costs over $35.01 per month.
  • If rent or mortgage costs have increased, tell DTA about that increase.

If anyone in the SNAP household is working, looking for work, or in school, tell DTA about child or disabled adult care costs such as babysitter, transportation, or day care costs.This information can be most easily shared online at DTAConnect.com.


The Senior Center including TRANSPORTATION and meals will be closed on Snow Days.

Please listen to WSBS (860 AM/94.1 FM) for any winter closures.

If you attend classes, please be sure the instructor has your contact information in the event of a winter closing. Typically if the Berkshire Regional School District is closed, the senior center will be as well.
