The recent inclement weather has been harmful to many West Virginia families. For that reason, the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources is making some adjustments to the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP), which was formerly known as the food stamp program.
Families that received SNAP benefits and lost food during June because of inclement weather will be eligible for replacement benefits for the month of June. All applications for replacement benefits should be made by July 30.
Those interested in replacement benefits should contact their local Department of Health and Human Resources area offices, call the customer service center at 1-877-716-1212 or go online at www.WVDHHR.org and click on SNAP Replacement Form under Current Topics. The completed form may be returned to a DHHR office, faxed to 1-304-558-4501 or scanned and sent by email to email@example.com.
