More About ACCESS Florida
ACCESS stands for “automated community connection to economic self-sufficiency” – and its name essentially describes its purpose: to easily connect recipients with their public assistance information. This information is available online, 24/7, via a recipient’s MyACCESS account.
Programs accessible via ACCESS include:
- Medicaid: The federal and state public health insurance program for people with low incomes. This reduces healthcare costs and improves access to medical care for low-income adults, children, the elderly, pregnant women, and people with disabilities.
- Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP): This is Florida’s food-assistance program: nutritional support for low-income seniors, individuals, and families, as well as those with disabilities living on fixed incomes. This is the program that provides EBT cards, which look and work like debit cards, but are loaded with SNAP benefits (sometimes called food stamps).
- Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF): Florida’s TANF program provides monthly cash assistance to needy families to help them become self-sufficient.
