ACCESSing STATE ASSISTANCE
In efforts to limit the spread of COVID-19 and assist families, the Division of Family and Children Services (DFCS) requests that families with school-age children be allowed and encouraged to use district-issued student devices to access SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), Medicaid or TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) applications and information remotely.
To limit the spread of COVID-19 and protect the public, the Division of Family and Children Services (DFCS) encourages families to access self-service options online during this period.
Those without internet access can contact the DFCS Customer Contact Center at 877-423-4746 for additional information or to request a paper application. Once completed, applications and any required verification can be mailed back to your local county DFCS office. County office locations are available online at https://dfcs.georgia.gov/locations.
GaDOE has many resources available to support learning at home during school closures, including daily instructional television broadcasts in partnership with Georgia Public Broadcasting.
