Low- to moderate-income Louisiana residents may be eligible for Disaster
Food Stamp benefits in the event of a natural disaster. Exact eligibility
requirements for Disaster Food Stamp benefits are announced at the time
of a disaster. Current Food Stamp recipients who are eligible for additional
benefits will receive them automatically. However, all low- to moderate-
income Louisianans who do not currently receive Food Stamps are
encouraged to pre-apply for Disaster Food Stamp benefits online or by
phone. Pre-applying will speed the issuance of benefits if a Disaster Food
Stamp     Program      is   activated   and   the   applicant   meets   eligibility
requirements. After a disaster, applicants will need to visit a Disaster Food
Stamp Program site, show identification and provide or confirm application
information. Applicants will have their eligibility determined at a Disaster
Food Stamp Program site, and will receive benefits if determined eligible.


Pre-apply online at www.dss.louisiana.gov or by calling
