WV Flood victims: Disaster-SNAP benefits available, apply BY JULY 31

The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR) announced on July 20, 2016 that residents who lived or worked in Clay, Fayette, Greenbrier, Jackson, Kanawha, Lincoln, Monroe, Nicholas, Pocahontas, Roane, Summers and Webster counties during the June 23, 2016, flooding may be eligible for Disaster Supplemental Nutrition Assistance (D-SNAP) benefits.

D-SNAP generally offers more benefits than regular SNAP including the maximum benefit amount per eligible household size (not just the benefit amount you normally get based on your income, which for many seniors is only the minimum of $16/mo).

D-SNAP might be available even to some individuals and families in the flooded counties who do not normally receive SNAP because of lost access to money or unexpected flood-related expenses, and assets such as home and car are not included in the eligibility assessment.

Residents of the 12 identified counties may apply for D-SNAP benefits at the following locations from July 25, 2016 through July 31, 2016.
