Our Benefits Services Team is here to help. 

The application process for many federal and state benefit programs can be complicated. Our Benefits Services program seeks to connect more individuals to these public programs by reducing barriers, explaining applications & following up with individuals. By connecting people to income support benefits, we hope to set families up to achieve long-term food security.

Our team can help you apply for public benefits. You do not need to reside in our service area to receive assistance with public benefits applications. Financial assistance for State IDs is limited to our service area.
