INDIANA (21Alive) -- If you are one of the 900,000 Hoosier households on food stamps, changes are on the way.

According to representatives from feeding Indiana's Hungry Incorporated, the extra benefits provided by the 2009 Federal Stimulus law are set to expire November 1.

Benefits will decrease by about 5% or by about a nickle on every dollar.

Indiana's Family and Social Services Administration is expected to inform recipients before the change in November.
