Disaster Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (DSNAP)
As you prepare for hurricane season or other disasters, make pre-registering for the Disaster Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (DSNAP) part of your plan.
DSNAP provides eligible low- to moderate-income households who do not normally receive SNAP benefits with help buying groceries due to lost income or damages following a disaster.
SNAP Recipients Not Eligible for DSNAP
SNAP recipients are not typically eligible for DSNAP and should not apply. In the event of a disaster, if SNAP recipients are eligible for additional benefits, those benefits will be handled through a separate process.
Pre-register Before A DSNAP Activation
Be ready if DSNAP becomes available for your community. DSNAP pre-registration is simple and can be done online through the CAFÉ customer portal.
