Texas Health and Human Services announced today that Harvey victims will have three additional days to apply for D-SNAP in Harris County as the state begins to ramp down its post-Harvey program for disaster food relief.
The extra opportunity is being offered due to the challenges that exist when serving a large and densely populated area like Harris County. With input from local officials, it was determined that the large population and expansive nature of the county warranted another opportunity to apply.The site will be open Wednesday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Deussen Park’s Senior Center and the Open Air Pavilion, 12303 Sonnier St. in Houston. Harvey victims who are residents of Harris County who missed earlier opportunities can apply at the site.
No additional extensions or phases of D-SNAP are being announced at this time. Applicants must be in line by 7 p.m. to be considered; those who arrive after 7 p.m. cannot get in line. Due to high volumes of applicants not all individuals in line at 7 p.m. will necessarily be served.
