The Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare is sensitive to the needs of the Hurricane Katrina evacuees and has streamlined the following policies in order to meet their urgency:
2. Food Stamps*
a. Evacuees meeting certain criteria will qualify for an initial 1-month maximum food stamp benefit for their household size, provided they apply by 10/31/05.
b. Provided eligibility criteria are met, evacuee households will be certified for 4 months of benefits.
c. Evacuees currently receiving food stamp benefits from their former resident state, who plan to return there, will be assisted in accessing those benefits.
*Verification requirements are waived or postponed for all of the programs listed above if evacuees are unable to provide the information. Completion of an application form is required.
