Take advantage of the shared client population across human services programs in your state to streamline operations, share funding opportunities, and improve delivery of public assistance benefits to low-income working families. We can help integrate many of your agency's programs into a seamless eligibility environment.

How Will Your State Benefit From Integrating Eligibility Practices?

  • Shorter processing times
  • Increased accuracy of applications
  • Decrease in duplicative submission of verifications
  • Fewer phone calls and office visits for case managers
  • Streamlined business processes
  • Potential reduced operating costs

Improvements For Clients And Caseworkers

The process to apply for most eligibility programs can feel cumbersome to customers. Many customers are repeat applicants who have come to expect a difficult process to apply for multiple programs while managing family crises and instability.

 

Why not leverage existing client information and eligibility determinations to provide a more rapid, effective approach to delivering benefits? By integrated both policy and technology, both clients and caseworkers will benefit from an environment that's easier to navigate, with fewer trips to the agency, shorter wait times, reduced churn, fewer phone calls, less paperwork, and increased satisfaction.
