Last Day to Apply for Disaster SNAP (DSNAP) is Wednesday, Oct. 28 - 10/27/20

Wednesday, Oct. 28 is the last day for residents in one of the 8 designated counties - Clackamas, Douglas, Jackson, Klamath, Lane, Lincoln, Linn, and Marion – to apply for Disaster SNAP benefits.

“Any resident who has not yet submitted an online application is encouraged to do so before it is too late,” urged Dan Haun, Self-Sufficiency Programs Director.

Due to the pandemic, the application will be completely online. If you need assistance, please call 2-1-1 or reach out to the Aging and Disability Resource Connection at 1-855-ORE-ADRC.

After submitting your application, you will be contacted over the phone to complete your required interview. You will need to provide information on your household members, income, resources, and disaster-related expenses. Please note, an Oregon Department of Human Services worker will never ask for your debit or credit card number.

Disaster Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (DSNAP) provides temporary food assistance for households affected by a natural disaster. DSNAP provides one month of benefits on an Oregon EBT card to eligible disaster survivors and can facilitate the issuance of supplemental SNAP benefits for ongoing households. To be eligible for DSNAP, a household must live or work in the disaster area, have been affected by the disaster, and meet certain DSNAP eligibility criteria.
