BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

Alabamians who get food stamps will see a reduction in their benefits next month.

Extra benefits that were part of the federal stimulus program in 2009 are ending. Department of Human Resource officials say the maximum monthly benefit for a family of four will drop $36.

In August, Alabama had more than 900,000 people who received benefits.
