Medicaid and Food Stamp Application Assistance

On December 16, the Florida Department of Children and Families is rolling out a new online application to apply for Medicaid, food stamps, or temporary cash assistance. If you do not already have a “My Access” account to file an application, you will need to create one the first time the new application process is used.

For help in creating an account, come to the Leesburg Public Library on Monday or Tuesday, December 16 – 17, anytime between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m., and trained Access FL Partners will be available for one-on-one assistance. The service is free, and pre-registration is not required.  If you already have a “My Access” account, your information will automatically be transferred to the new system.

Call (352) 728-9790 for information. The library is located at 100 E. Main Street, Leesburg, FL 34748.
