Some Erie County residents who were reported to have received larger than usual allotments of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) – or “food stamp” – benefits were entitled to the payments, county officials said today.

Peter Anderson, a spokesman for County Executive Mark C. Poloncarz, said the payments were the result of a class action suit.

“From what we understand, so far, the unexpectedly large payments that certain individuals received were authorized by New York State as a result of the Richard C. vs. Berlin lawsuit, which entitles a one-time SNAP benefit for certain individuals,” Anderson said.
