ATTN: SNAP Recipients who Reported Hurricane Barry-related Food Loss
Many SNAP recipients are wondering when they can expect to see replacement benefits on their EBT cards. We are processing requests as quickly as possible.
SNAP recipients who reported a food loss and were without power for at least 24 hours due to Hurricane/Tropical Storm Barry, and turned in a completed and signed SNAP 38 form by the deadline, can expect to receive their replacement benefits loaded to their current card on or before Wednesday, August 7, 2019, if determined eligible for these benefits.
DCFS is working diligently to process all of the completed and signed SNAP 38 forms to replace these important benefits by then. Please refrain from contacting us prior to August 7 to request status reports. Such inquiries slow down processing.
After August 7, anyone needing to discuss concerns regarding replacement benefits can contact us by emailing LAHelpU.DCFS@la.gov, calling 1-(888) 524-3578, toll-free, or visiting one of our local offices. Be prepared with your full name, contact information and Case ID# (the number below your name on the front of your EBT card).
