SNAP Replacement Benefits

Current SNAP recipients who have lost food purchased with SNAP benefits due to storms, flooding, power outages, or other misfortunes may be eligible for replacement SNAP benefits.

Under SNAP regulations, SNAP recipients who lost food in a “household misfortune” may obtain replacement benefits as long as they fit the criteria and fulfill the requirements. The links below provide information about the process for requesting SNAP replacement benefits.
