The recent flooding of the Ohio River has caused devastation for many families across the Ohio Valley, leaving hundreds without homes and belongings. Alongside household items, families have also lost essential food supplies due to the flooding. To assist those affected, the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources is offering support to EBT SNAP benefit recipients who have suffered food losses. Recipients can recoup some of their losses by filling out a form provided by the department and returning it to their local DHHR office within 10 days of the reported loss date.
