Disaster SNAP Applications Accepted Today through September 12 for West Virginians Impacted by July Flooding


Beginning today, the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR) will accept applications to receive Disaster Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (D-SNAP) benefits from residents who lived or worked in Harrison, Marion, Marshall and Wetzel counties during the July 29, 2017 floods.  

Eligibility for D-SNAP will be based on the household’s net income, which is determined by adding available income, cash on hand and accessible bank accounts, then subtracting unreimbursed disaster-related expenses. Assets such as homes and automobiles are not included in the net income eligibility determination.  View eligibility guidelines at http://bit.ly/2acZBFs. 

Approved by DHHR and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), D-SNAP benefits can be used to purchase food, but cannot be used to buy alcoholic beverages, tobacco or non-food items.  Most benefits will be available within one day of the date of application. Benefits must be used within 120 days. 

Residents of the 4 identified counties may apply for D-SNAP benefits at the following locations from today through September 12, 2017.
