WMDT 47 NEWS - Due to the government shutdown, already at least one state will no longer be issuing new vouchers.
North Carolina officials said Tuesday they will no longer issue benefits after October. According to the NC Department of Health and Human Services, approximately 80 percent of eligible clients have been issued food benefits for this month and federal funds will be sufficient enough to cover those vouchers.
WMDT spoke with officials from Maryland, Delaware and Virginia about any updates with their programs.
In Maryland, the program has enough funding at least through the end of the month. The same can be said about programs in Delaware and Virginia, according to officials.
