My Access Florida

  1. Provides access to the Florida Department of Children and Families Automated Community Connection program better known as Access Florida
  2. Designed for people in the state of Florida seeking monetary assistance (aka SNAP program), food stamps or information about low-income medical programs within the state

It should be noted that residents can apply for just one or all of the previously named programs at the same time as a separate application is not needed for each benefit.  The quickest way to apply is online as it only take 30 minutes or less to complete an application online using My Florida (the slowest way to apply would be via US Mail).  Please note all forms completed online will have to be signed using the e-signature option and applicants will have to show proof of ID at a later date.
