SNAP policy at PM 22-03-01 states that food destroyed in a disaster may be replaced if the customer requests the replacement within 10 days of the disaster. Because Harrisburg in Saline County experienced widespread damage and power outages of more than 4 hours due to the February 29th tornado, we requested a waiver of the requirement that food destroyed in a disaster must be requested within 10 days.
FNS granted us permission to allow customers affected by the tornado and power outages in Saline County to request replacement of destroyed food bought with February benefits through March 22, 2012.
Continue to follow the instructions in WAG 22-03-01 as follows:
NOTE: If the SNAP unit's address has changed, change the address on the regular rolls before submitting this Form 552.
