On-site D-SNAP location in Charlotte and Sarasota counties open November 13 through 15

The Department of Children and Families will open a Disaster Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program location for Charlotte and Sarasota counties starting Sunday through Tuesday for applicants to complete in-person interviews 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.

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.
