USDA Announces Approval of D-SNAP for Louisiana Disaster Areas

WASHINGTON, October 23, 2020 – Low-income Louisiana residents recovering from Hurricane Delta could be eligible for a helping hand from the USDA’s Disaster Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (D-SNAP), announced today by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue said that households who 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.
