D-SNAP info

Georgians hit hardest by Hurricane Michael can apply for assistance to feed their families under a temporary program supported by the USDA and DFCS.

The program extends aid to low-income families who have incurred expenses or suffered losses to income or property because of a natural disaster. The Division estimates about 50,000 families may be eligible for the assistance following Hurricane Michael.

Families who live or work in Early County can apply for assistance beginning today and through Nov. 14.

Where to go: Note D-SNAP locations may not be in the office where you normally apply for food stamps. In Early County the location is at the Early County Ag Center, 5188 Freeman Road in Blakely.

To find D-SNAP operating hours or for more information, visit www.dfcs.georgia.gov or call (833-376-2742).
