The Disaster Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (D-SNAP) can help pay for food for qualified individuals affected by the wildfires. The program provides funds on an electronic benefits transfer (EBT) card to pay for food. Individuals can be eligible for D-SNAP if they reside in a disaster area that has received an Individual Assistance declaration (currently Maui County) and are facing a loss of income, costly expenses, evacuation or relocation expenses, or personal injury related to the disaster. People already receiving SNAP benefits may still quality for additional amounts under D-SNAP if they receive less than the maximum amount for the family and have experienced loss due to the disaster. D-SNAP can increase the benefit to meet the maximum amount for the family.
Individuals seeking to apply for D-SNAP can do so with the State of Hawai‘i’s Department of Human Services. For additional assistance, please call the Public Assistance Information Line at 1-855-643-1643 or visit the Maui SNAP Processing Center listed below:
