Oregon State Agencies Compile List of Wildfire Resources
We hope that you and your loved ones are safe.
The wildfires in Oregon have affected so many people, and we know that you may be dealing with your own evacuation while also working with the people you serve on their needs. Our thoughts are with everyone who is affected by these fires.
Oregon’s state agencies have put a lot of good information online to help keep people safe.
We have put together an attachment with links to information and resources that may help you during this challenging time. Please share this information widely.
Important information for folks who receive benefits from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program:
If you have lost your food due to the wildfires, you can have up to $200 of your SNAP benefits reloaded onto your card. Folks in this situation should contact the local ODHS office and fill out a short form stating what food they lost and how they were impacted by the fires.
You don’t need to go to “your” ODHS office, you can just go to the one closest to you if you have been evacuated. Oregon Department of Human Services local offices are also helping to coordinate basic needs for all evacuees, such as food boxes, whether you receive SNAP benefits or not.
Stay safe. Our thoughts are with you!
