September 2, 2005 from the DFCS
ATLANTA (GA) –The Department of Human Resources’ Division of Family and Children Services (DFCS) is providing expedited Food stamp assistance for the victims of Hurricane Katrina.
Those storm evacuees who were not already receiving food stamp benefits in their home states and now require assistance are being asked to contact the local DFCS office in their temporary county of residence. Evacuees should call Constituent Services at 404-651-6316 for details. There, evacuees can apply for assistance. For the purposes of receiving aid, applicants will be treated as if they are Georgia residents and will be able to receive these expedited Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) cards (food stamps) benefits at the county DFCS office.
Applicants will receive the maximum benefit allowed for their household size. Once recipients have these EBT cards in hand, they must call the toll-free number listed on the card to have them activated. The card will be active within 2 days. In the meantime, DFCS is providing immediate assistance, such as food, clothing and shelter for all evacuees who need assistance.
For those evacuees who were already receiving food stamp benefits in their home states, DFCS is working with Mississippi, Louisiana and Alabama to allow local DFCS offices to serve as temporary addresses for recipients to receive replacement EBT cards. DFCS will provide evacuees with emergency food supplies in cooperation with the local community food banks as well as clothing. DFCS offices across the state will remain open during the weekend to assist evacuees in processing aid applications.
For more information on the expedited food stamp program or if you require further assistance please call Constituent Services at 404-651-6316 or 888-295-1769.
