JCCRP Helps With Food Stamps
The Jewish Community Council of the Rockaway Peninsula (JCCRP) is pleased to announce one more way it is able to assist people who suffered loss due to Hurricane Irene and its aftermath.
Due to the flooding and power outages created by Hurricane Irene, the Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance has instructed local districts affected by the Hurricane to continue to accept requests for replacement of food stamp benefits even though the ten day window to report the loss has passed.
The new deadline for applying is Friday, September 23.
The JCCRP has already assisted many clients in applying for and receiving replacement food stamps from its offices at 1525 Central Avenue in Far Rockaway, regardless of from which office their food stamp case originated. For replacement food stamps or for assistance with a new application call: 718-327-7755 ext. 6118 today.
