IMPORTANT! Time limit to replace benefits related to Irene is extended to Friday, September 23, 2011.
FNS has just approved an extension to allow us to continue to issue replacement benefits for households that lost food during Irene through the end of the day onFriday, September 23, 2011. This will allow those housheolds who have been isolated or who have not had a chance to ask for help the extra time they need to do so. This is effective on a statewide basis.
However, because of the damage to the normal call center in Waterbury, there is concern that people are not able to get through to file for these benefits. If you or someone you know needs a phonecall to file for replacement benefits, please contact VTResponse. 802-922-4202 or firstname.lastname@example.org
