DSNAP Approved for 3 More Parishes; Phase 1 Extended

September 16, 2020

DCFS has received federal approval to operate DSNAP in three more parishes - Caddo, LaSalle and St. Landry - and will add those parishes to the Phase 2 schedule, which begins Sept. 17. The U.S. Department of Agriculture Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) also approved DCFS's request to extend Phase 1 for another week, until Sept. 23, allowing residents impacted by Hurricane Laura in the nine Phase 1 parishes additional time to apply for DSNAP benefits.
