Customers who need to submit documentation to the Atlantic County Department of Family & Community Development may now do so through the use of two new secure drop boxes located at the Atlantic Avenue and Bacharach Boulevard entrances to the County Office Building at 1333 Atlantic Avenue, Atlantic City.
The drop boxes will be available 24/7 and will be monitored by video surveillance. Staff will remove the contents from the boxes each weekday.
The Department of Family & Community Development processes applications for General Assistance, SNAP Benefits (food stamps), Emergency Assistance, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families and Medicaid.
Customers should submit all related documents in one envelop rather than dropping multiple loose documents into the box. No checks should be submitted in the drop boxes.
Customers in need of assistance should complete an application online at www.njhelps.org. This will determine any benefits for which they may be eligible.
