If your food or medication spoiled due to the power outage, you can file a claim with Con Edison within 30 days here:
If you have SNAP and lost food:
· Current SNAP clients (CA/SNAP and SNAP only) can request replacement of food purchased with SNAP benefits by completing and submitting a form number LDSS-2291.
· Households not in receipt of CA or SNAP who are unable to cook meals in their home because of the power outage (i.e. electric range) can apply for a One-Shot Deal for restaurant allowance through AHRA.
· Households already in receipt of CA who are unable to cook meals in their home because of the power outage can request a special grant for a restaurant allowance through AHRA.
· Households who need assistance with purchasing food can always apply for SNAP benefits, but regular eligibility requirements would apply.
