Officials announce disaster food benefits for wildfire victims in 8 Oregon counties – OregonLive

October 18, 2020

The Oregon Department of Human Services received federal approval to begin distributing food benefits to victims of Oregon’s historical wildfires last month, officials said Saturday.

Anyone who lived or worked in Clackamas, Douglas, Jackson, Klamath, Lane, Lincoln, Linn, and Marion counties who suffered losses from the wildfires could be eligible for one month of benefits through the Disaster Supplemental Assistance Program, officials said.

Pre-registration for the benefits opened Saturday and runs through Thursday. After that, those seeking benefits will need to do so on specific days depending on what letter their last name starts with. Oct. 28, the last day to apply, will be open to everyone, officials said.

For full details on the benefits being offered and to apply, head over to the state’s website.
