    Change is Coming to the Department of Social Services

    North Carolina is implementing a “no wrong door” and one-stop Medicaid and Food & Nutrition Services application process. Customers will be able to apply for most income support programs (Food & Nutrition Services, Medicaid, & Work First) through a “1 stop” process at DSS or via electronic submission of their application. All 100 local NC Departments of Social Services are implementing like changes as a result of NCFAST and The Affordable Health Care Act.
