You Can Now Apply for Emergency Assistance Using Your Mobile Device
In a Press Release, the Erie County Department of Social Services announced that people are now able to apply for Assistance using a new Mobile Document Upload program.
Because of COVID-19 and so many offices having to close, it has been very difficult for people to apply for SNAP, Medicaid, HEAP, and along with other Assistance Programs.
Mobile Document Upload will also allow many clients to avoid visiting our offices to drop off documents, and will therefore reduce the risk of COVID-19 virus transmission.
-Erie County Commissioner of Social Services, Marie A. Cannon
