Pr0gramcl!ertts can reque, st benefits BISMARCK - The North Dakota Depa~ment of Human Services has requ6"sted and received federal approyal to provide replacement ben- efits for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Pro~am clients impacted by widespread storm-related power outages. To receive the extra help, program participants must report their storm- related food loss m a county social service office and sign a request form by Feb. 28. 2010. Program director Arlene Dura said the U.S. Department of Agriculture makes this extra help available because power outages can damage or destroy clients' food supplies and can cause others to be displaced from their food supplies. Dura said the program will replace the amount of the loss. up to a household's January 2010 benefit amount. A participating household that reports a food loss of $1(X) and received a $t00 fbod assistance ben- efit in January 2010 would receive an additional $100 in benefits. Dura said program clients with misplaced EBT cards, which are the specialized debit cards clients use in stores to purchase food items, can obtain replacement cards from any county social service office. Individuals with questions about their benefits can contact the North Dakota Department of Human Services at 800-755-2716.
