How to Submit Documents When Applying for Food, Financial and Medical Assistance

(Posted 2020 September)

Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) graphicThere has been a significant increase in the number of residents needing public assistance. Although Fairfax County Government buildings have reopened, the Department of Family Services lobbies will remain closed for the immediate future due to the pandemic.

For people applying for food, financial and medical assistance (SNAP, TANF and Medicaid), there are multiple ways to submit documents without coming to the lobbies.
