The Division of Welfare and Supportive Services on Tuesday announced partnerships with retail locations across the state to help reach people who cannot access online applications.
State officials are urging Nevadans to apply for welfare benefits online and reserve the paper process for those who need it most. Online applications can be found at dwss.nv.gov/.
Local retailers such as WinCo and Dollar General will make paper applications available for welfare benefits at their locations.
“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,” said Steve Fisher, administrator of the state division.
Applications can be mailed to P.O. Box 15400, Las Vegas, NV 89114. The list of locations where people can find paper applications is below and can also be found at dwss.nv.gov.
