SNAP benefits are made available to forest fire victims




With the approval of the US Department of Agriculture, the Oregon Department of Human Services is now offering one month of DSNAP benefits.

SALEM, Ore The Oregon Department of Human Services received federal approval from the US Department of Agriculture, Food, and Nutrition to offer the Supplemental Disaster Assistance Program in eight Oregon counties affected by historic wildfires.

The eight approved counties are Clackamas, Douglas, Jackson, Klamath, Lane, Lincoln, Linn and Marion.

Anyone who lived or worked in any of the eight counties during the wildfires that broke out on September 7 and suffered losses from disasters may be eligible to receive one month of assistance from DSNAP.

DSNAP benefits are provided via an EBT card, similar to a debit card, and can be used to purchase food at grocery stores and other authorized SNAP retailers.

The benefits will be available to anyone who has suffered any of these losses during forest fires:

  • Damage or destruction of the house or independent business.
  • Loss or inaccessibility of income, including reduction or suppression of income or a significant delay in collecting income due to disaster-related issues.
  • Disaster-related expenses (home or business repairs, temporary shelter, evacuation, loss of food, etc.) that should not be reimbursed during the disaster compensation period.

Please note that people requesting help can pre-register for DSNAP from Saturday October 17, 2020 to Thursday October 22, 2020.

Due to COVID-19, all applications will be completed online.

For more information and to apply, visit the DNAP website.

If you need assistance, call 2-1-1 or contact the Aging and Disabled Resource Connection at 1-855-ORE-ADRC.
