Texas D-SNAP

Updated February 7, 2020

Texans recovering from Hurricane Harvey is eligible for disaster food benefits through Disaster SNAP, or D-SNAP in short.01

The Disaster Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program provides short-term food benefits for eligible families recovering from a disaster in 39 eligible counties.

D-SNAP eligible households in the affected areas will receive two months of benefits, equaling up to two months of SNAP benefits, to meet their food needs as they settle back home following the disaster.

No applications will be taken online. D-SNAP applications will be accepted for a limited amount of time in each county.

If you qualify for D-SNAP, you get benefits for one month on an Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card. The EBT works like a debit card at most grocery stores.

Information about D-SNAP, including office closures and other adjustments to the program, are available by dialing 2-1-1 or
