New SNAP Eligibility System: Q&A With Community Partners
June 17, 2021 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.
Dear Community Partner,
Access Arkansas is a website for Arkansans to apply for DHS benefits. We’re updating Access Arkansas to make it easier to use and give our clients more options to apply for and manage their benefits online.
We know that you serve people in your community by helping them to get connected to Health Care (Medicaid), Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), and Transitional Employment Assistance (TEA) benefits they may be eligible to get. You may even help them apply for benefits. That’s why it’s important that you also know about the updated Access Arkansas.
We have created a Community Partner Toolkit on our website to inform you about the updated Access Arkansas’s key features, when it will be available to clients, and what you can do to help. Please review this toolkit at Access Arkansas Community Partner Toolkit - Arkansas Department of Human Services.
Also, we will host two townhall sessions for you to ask questions about the updates to Access Arkansas. Please plan to join us at one of the following times:
If you have any questions about the updated Access Arkansas, you can visit humanservices.arkansas.gov, email Ask.ARIES@dhs.arkansas.gov, or call 1-855-372-1084. We look forward to you joining one of our calls.
Director, DHS Division of County Operations
