Lost food or meds due to outage? Get help!


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.
