Field Operations Memo 2011-23 primarily focused on the operation of a Disaster SNAP (D-SNAP) for applicants who were not currently receiving SNAP benefits. Since then, the Department of Transitional Assistance (DTA) received approval from the USDA’s Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) to issue D-SNAP supplements to ongoing SNAP households who reside or work in the 12 communities previously approved as part of the state’s D-SNAP.
Ongoing SNAP households may be issued D-SNAP supplements for the difference between the household’s June benefit and the maximum allotment for the household size. This memo issues procedures for processing D-SNAP supplements for ongoing SNAP households residing in one of the twelve communities approved for D-SNAP. Households that received the maximum SNAP benefit amount for June for their household size are ineligible for a D- SNAP supplement.
