Response & Recovery Assistance
||The Food & Nutrition Service is working with state and local officials
to ensure that individuals and families affected by the Midwest floods
and tornadoes have access to food. Through its Disaster
Supplemental Nutrition Assistance
Program (D-SNAP), people who might not ordinarily qualify for SNAP
benefits may be
eligible if they have had disaster damage to their homes or expenses related to protecting their homes, or if they have lost
income as a result of the disaster, or have no access to bank
accounts or other resources.
In addition to the D-SNAP, FNS has amended provisions of the Summer
Food Service Program in affected counties to ensure that
children can eat.

July 14th UPDATE
As of July 14th, FNS has approved operation
of Disaster Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Programs in Presidentially declared
disaster counties in five Midwest States due to recent flooding
(37 counties in Indiana, 18 counties in Illinois, 62 counties in
Iowa, 13 counties in Nebraska, and 30 counties in Wisconsin).
Being on this list does not mean that a county is running a D-SNAP today.
Some counties may have finished accepting applications. Some counties
may not yet have begun to accept applications.
