Service Description

ApplyMN is a simple, secure Web application that connects you with state and county services to help meet your and your family's basic needs. You can use ApplyMN to apply for: cash assistance, child care assistance, emergency assistance, family planning, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits, and Long Term Care services.

ApplyMN does not determine if you qualify for services; it will send your information to a state, county or tribal worker to review to see if you can get help.

ApplyMN does not replace paper applications; it is an online alternative that allows you to apply for multiple programs using a single application. Paper applications will continue to be available in addition to ApplyMN.
