D-SNAP registration in Harris Co. deadline extended

Montgomery County residents will be able to sign up for emergency food benefits known as D-SNAP today.

Residents can stop by the Montgomery County Fairgrounds on Airport Road in Conroe from 8 a.m. until 7 p.m. Monday.

The deadline to apply is this Friday, Oct. 20.

And Harris County residents will have another chance to register for the disaster benefits.

Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee worked to extend the benefits after seeing the huge need in the county.

The original deadline passed more than a week ago.

A registration site at Alexander Deussen Park on Sonia Road will open Wednesday, Oct. 18.
