On Friday, February 3, and Monday, February 6, 2017, the statewide system for benefits will be closed so a new coordinated system can be implemented. This new system will have Medicaid, SNAP and TANF benefits incorporated into one system instead of the previous three systems. Between February 3 and ending the early morning of February 7, no applications can be processed and no information can be accessed - statewide. Applications can be dropped off in the drop boxes in the Ferlazzo and Sudley North lobbies.
