FNS Disaster Assistance

Disaster Household Distribution

Under a Presidential Declaration of a National Emergency, FNS may approve state requests for Disaster Household Distributions for targeted areas to meet specific needs when traditional channels of food are unavailable and not being replenished on a regular basis. DHD provides boxed foods to households using existing inventories of USDA-purchased foods.

USDA has approved targeted DHD programs for the following states and Indian Tribal Organizations (ITOs). Please check with the specific state or ITO for details on the DHD operation. (This page will be updated soon with links to more specific information for each agency, and as additional DHD programs are approved.)
