Posted By Willie Simpson On December 10, 2012 @ 2:00 pm In News & Features | No Comments
Starting this Wednesday, December 12, through Tuesday, December 18, the New York City Human Resources Administration, led by Commissioner Robert Doar, will be enacting a Disaster Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (DSNAP) for people living in zip codes most affected by Hurricane Sandy.
Families and individuals living in the 12 designated zip codes, which include Coney Island, the Rockaways, parts of Brooklyn, Staten Island, and Manhattan, can apply for disaster food stamp aid as long as they are currently not receiving food stamps already. People looking to receive aid need to apply between December 12 and December 18, and must do so in person, or have an authorized person representing their household at the following locations.
Here is a list of the specific zip codes the program covers, as well as the conditions needed to qualify.
