The Disaster Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program offers short-term food assistance benefits to families recovering from a disaster. D-SNAP is designed to help when people return to their homes and have access to electricity and grocery stores. Benefits are loaded on a Lone Star Card within three days of applying, and the amount is equal to two months of the maximum amount of SNAP benefits, based on household size.

There is a limited period of time to apply for D-SNAP, based on your county of residence.

To be eligible, you must:

  • Be from a county that has been declared a federal disaster area*.
  • Have experienced a loss of income, destruction of your home or a disaster-related expense, such as temporary shelter or home repairs.
  • Not have been getting regular SNAP food benefits at the time of the disaster.
  • Meet certain income limits. Click here to view income limits.
