Starting Wednesday, victims of Hurricane Harvey in the Coastal Bend will be able to apply for short-term food benefits from the federal government.

It's a program called the Disaster Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or D-SNAP.

It works like the SNAP program and provides short-term food benefits for eligible families recovering from a disaster. To be eligible, you have to live in an area that has been designated a federal disaster area.

However, you can only apply in person in the county that you reside in.
