SNAP households that lose power can request replacement benefits.

Here's some info that could be relevant for local SNAP households given the storm coming this weekend... and any future times when power outages happen. This could be really helpful for people who lose refrigerated or frozen food during extended power outages.

SNAP households that have lost power for more than four hours have 10 days from the outage to request replacement benefits. Families that only get SNAP can call 1‐877‐382‐2363. Families that get SNAP and cash assistance should contact their case manager.

Please spread the word!
