FAA6.G Disaster Nutrition Assistance Program (DNAP) : 06 DNAP - Eligibility and Benefit Determination - Overview : D Eligibility and Benefit Determination - DNAP Eligibility and Benefit Amount
D Eligibility and Benefit Determination - DNAP Eligibility and Benefit Amount
Compare the budgetary unit's DNAP net income amount to the appropriately calculated DNAP maximum income limit. (See Determining the DNAP Net Income and DNAP Maximum Income Limit)
 
When the DNAP net income is equal to or less than the DNAP maximum income limit, the budgetary unit is eligible for disaster benefits.
 
The budgetary unit is eligible to receive the full NA allotment for their budgetary unit size as authorized by the Thrifty Food Plan. The allotment is issued based on the disaster benefit period.
 
Budgetary units cannot receive more than one DNAP allotment in any benefit period. If a state operates two programs for two different disasters in the same project area, the state would need to ensure that budgetary units only participate in one program in any benefit period. If a second disaster destroys the benefits obtained from a DNAP serving victims of the first disaster, the budgetary unit may be eligible for replacement benefits.
