CARSON CITY, NV - - April 07, 2020

The Division of Welfare and Supportive Services (DWSS) today announced partnerships with retail locations across the state to help reach people who cannot access online applications.

Local retailers such as WinCo and Dollar General have teamed up with DWSS to make paper applications available for welfare benefits at their store locations.

“While Access Nevada online is the best option to apply for essential benefit programs,” said Steve Fisher, administrator of the Division. “We realize some people do not have internet access, so this is a way people can pick up paper applications, then they can drop off applications at drop boxes out in front of any welfare office or mail them, and get connected to benefits.”

Applications can be mailed to: P.O. Box 15400, Las Vegas, NV 89114
