Have you applied for benefits recently?

The Executive Office of Health and Human Services, the Rhode Island Department of Human Services, and HealthSourceRI administer a wide range of public assistance programs and services such as food, cash, child care, and medical benefits. 


In applying for benefits or services, customers may get a request to submit required documents — used to process applications or determine eligibility. Customers have multiple options when submitting required documents to verify information.
