ICYMI: USDA Announces Approval of D-SNAP for Oregon Disaster Areas

WASHINGTON, Oct. 19, 2020 – U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Secretary Sonny Perdue announced on Friday, Oct. 16, that low-income Oregon residents enduring the ongoing wildfires could be eligible for much needed assistance from the USDA’s Disaster Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (D-SNAP).

Households that may not normally be eligible under regular Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) rules may qualify for D-SNAP – if they meet the disaster income limits and have qualifying disaster-related expenses.
