Department of Children and Families (DCF) Secretary Shevaun Harris today announced a Disaster Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (D-SNAP) location will be open for Charlotte and Sarasota Counties on Sunday, November 13 through Tuesday, November 15 for applicants to complete their in-person interview on-site. D-SNAP provides food assistance for individuals and families impacted by Hurricane Ian and who are not receiving food assistance benefits through the regular Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).
Residents of Charlotte and Sarasota Counties who pre-registered online but did not have a chance to complete their D-SNAP phone interview can visit the D-SNAP location in Charlotte County for an on-site interview. On-site interviews are not required if a phone interview was completed.
DCF will reopen pre-registration for individuals who reside in these counties and did not previously pre-register online before October 16. We encourage individuals to pre-register online before coming on-site to complete their interview. Online pre-registration will be available at www.myflfamilies.com/dsnap from Sunday, November 13 through Tuesday, November 15.
