Public Benefits Assistance
The Public Benefits Assistance Program assists clients in applying for various forms of government assistance, including Medicaid/Medicare, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) Benefits, Disability Benefits, Social Security/Supplemental Income, Low Income Heating and Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) and Healthcare Coverage.
The program combats the three most common barriers clients face in ensuring their welfare:
- complicated procedures required to receive public benefits,
- limited ability to communicate in English, and
- the persistence of misinformation related to public benefits.
