Families that rely on SNAP benefits to purchase food and or essential items, and who lost food as a result of the ice storm, may be able to recover some of the losses.

The Oregon Department of Health and Human Services may be able to add additional money to your account.

Eligible recipients need to fill out a form either in-person or by mail. The Keizer DHS office is at 3420 Cherry Avenue, Suite 110. The form is not available online at this time.

Operators at the 2-1-1 information line can also assist in submitting the form.

If you can’t make it to the office, call 503-373-0808 to report the loss immediately, you will then have 10 days to file paperwork.
