Texas Health and Human Services has announced it will add an extra day for victims of Hurricane Harvey to apply for disaster food relief in Nueces County.
Nueces County residents have one final opportunity to apply for D-SNAP from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 27, at Sunrise Mall, 5858 S. Padre Island Drive, Corpus Christi.
The extra day is being added due to longer than expected lines over the weekend and to ensure that those who are eligible have enough opportunity to apply. No other sites will be added in Nueces County after Wednesday.
The Disaster Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, commonly known as D-SNAP, provides short-term food benefits for eligible families recovering from a disaster.
