Residents are encouraged to preregister for DSNAP online at www.dcfs.la.gov/preregister or by phone at 1-888-LAHELP-U (1-888-524-3578) before visiting a DSNAP location. The DCFS Call Center will be available Tuesday, September 6, through Friday, September 9, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and on Saturday, September 10, from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. for residents to pre-register by phone. Customer Service Representatives will not be available to take pre-registration calls on Sunday, September 4, and Labor Day, Monday, September 5.
Pre-registration is not a DSNAP application, but helps to expedite the time spent at a DSNAP site.
Accommodations will be made for the elderly and those with disabilities to reduce on-site wait times, but we strongly encourage these residents to name an Authorized Representative to visit a DSNAP site and complete an application on their behalf.
Authorized Representatives must bring a picture ID and the picture ID of the applicant/head of household they represent. They will also need a signed statement from the applicant/head of household or an adult household member authorizing them as a representative who can apply on their household's behalf.
DSNAP is only for eligible residents in designated areas who have been impacted by the flood, but who are NOT receiving SNAP benefits. SNAP recipients should NOT visit a DSNAP site.
DSNAP eligibility is not based solely on income. Eligibility is determined by a household's income that has been or is expected to be received from August 10 through September 8, available cash on hand, such as balances in checking and savings accounts, and disaster related expenses paid from August 10 through September 8.
