We know many people in our community are still suffering and we want to make sure everyone has access to help. Here are the current resources available in Manatee County:

DCF: Response and Recovery – Hurricane Ian ( 

The Manatee Family Resource Center is open until Saturday, 10/8 for mental health services, SNAP replacement assistance, connection to resources like shelter, food, clothing, personal hygiene items. 

Location: Azinger Family Compassion Center,3478 Bouwer Court, Palmetto, FL 34221 

Current SNAP customers in Manatee County can receive replacements of SNAP benefits for individuals who did not receive an early release of benefits (households that received benefits from 9/15/22 -9/28/2022). Replacement benefits were automatically loaded to EBT cards on 10/3/2022. Households that would normally receive SNAP benefits between 10/1/2022 – 10/14/2022 received their benefits for October early on 9/27/2022 to help with storm preparation in the event families needed to evacuate or to purchase non-perishable items. The Department cannot process a mass replacement of benefits for these households, per federal guidelines. However, if replacement benefits are needed for food items that were lost during the storm for those in the impacted counties, including Manatee County, recipients can apply online.  The Department received approval for SNAP benefits to be used to purchase hot meals.

DSNAP- DCF is applying for Disaster-SNAP benefits to help individuals/families in the impacted counties. They have not received approval yet. D-SNAP sites are not opened yet. They will let you know where they are located when they receive approval and are ready to receive applications.
