How Do You Renew Food Stamp Benefits in GA?

To renew food stamp benefits in Georgia, follow the instructions on the Food Stamps page of the Division of Family and Children Services website. You can determine your household's eligibility and apply online for the Food Stamps program at the Department of Human Service's website.

The proper form to renew your benefits is the FOOD STAMP/MEDICAID/TANF Renewal Form. This form and a detailed guide published by the Department of Human Services, or DHS, are both available at your county Division of Family and Children Services, or DFCS, office or at the DFCS website. Call your county office to have a form mailed to you; a list of offices is available on the DHS website County Offices page.

Submit the form online or to your local Office in person, by mail or by fax. Make sure to include all required information: the name of the head of your household, your address, and the signature of the head of household or another household member. This is necessary for the DFCS to consider the form complete. You or a member of your household must be available for an interview with an official from the Department of Family and Children Services after you file the application. This interview takes place at the local county DFCS office, but if necessary, may be conducted by phone or you can arrange a home visit.
