Disaster Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (D-SNAP)

The Disaster Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (D-SNAP) gives food assistance to low-income households with food loss or damage caused by a natural disaster.
If approved for D-SNAP benefits following an approved natural disaster, you will get an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card. You can use the card just like a debit card to buy allowable food at local FNS-authorized retail stores.
Because of the unique needs of disaster survivors, D-SNAP uses different standards than normal SNAP. Even if you would not normally qualify for SNAP, you may qualify for D-SNAP.
In the event of a natural disaster, information about approved D-SNAP programs will be added here with information about steps you need to take to receive benefits.There are currently no D-SNAP programs running in New Jersey.
