SNAP benefits available for some flood victims

Posted by wlpo on June 14, 2013

If your home or business was damaged by the floods in April, you might be eligible for special disaster food stamps. Starting Monday, the state is offering food assistance in the counties declared federal disaster areas, including La Salle and Bureau.

To qualify, you must have had damage to your home or business, paid disaster-related expenses that were not reimbursed, or loss or reduction of income because of the flooding in April.

Disaster SNAP benefits will be provided to families based on total income and assets available to a household during the flood.  If you already receive SNAP benefits and were affected by the flood you may also apply for the special program.

Applications until June 21.
