JACKSON COUNTY, Ore-- Today, the Oregon Department of Human Services received federal approval from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Food and Nutrition Service to offer disaster food benefits for eight different counties, including Jackson County, affected by the Oregon wildfires.

The eight counties that were approved for disaster food benefits were: Clackamas, Douglas, Jackson, Klamath, Lane, Lincoln, Linn, and Marion.

The ODHS says that any person who resided or was employed, within one of the counties listed above, on the September 7 wildfires and suffered disaster losses may be eligible to receive one month of temporary DSNAP assistance.

The DSNAP benefits will be provided via an EBT card which can be used to purchase food items at grocery stores and other authorized locations.

However, Oregonians will only be eligible to receive these benefits if they met at least one of the following criteria. One there was damage to or destruction of the home or self-employment business. Two, there has been a loss or inaccessibility of income including a reduction or termination of income or a significant delay in receiving income due to disaster-related problems, and three, that the person has experienced disaster-related expenses (home or business repairs, temporary shelter, evacuation, food loss, etc.) that they are not expected to be reimbursed.

People may start to pre-register for DSNAP starting on Saturday, Oct. 17, 2020, through Thursday, Oct. 22, 2020.
