Enrolling online provides privacy for families and reduces costs for Arkansas
A new processing center and the official launch of an online benefits application system will ensure Arkansans struggling though the effects of the recession will get the support they need, according to three non-profit advocacy organizations.
The Arkansas Hunger Relief Alliance, Arkansas Interfaith Alliance and Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families applaud today’s opening of a Department of Human Services data processing center in Batesville. The center will support the benefits enrollment website access.arkansas.gov, which gives Arkansans the option of applying for benefits online.
“ACCESS Arkansas will provide more eligible people access to the SNAP program, helping them purchase food for their families,” said Rhonda Sanders, Executive Director of Arkansas Hunger Relief Alliance.
