Residents who would like to register for a MyACCESS account can do so directly through the MyACCESS page on the Florida Department of Children and Families official website (myflfamilies.com). Once they have registered, residents can log into their accounts at any time to gain access to information regarding their benefits. They can access case information, apply for other benefits, make changes to their accounts and upload verification documents.

Assistance programs available include the Food Assistance Program, which helps families and individuals purchase nutritious food to help promote good health. The Temporary Cash Assistance program helps to provide financial assistance to pregnant women who are in their third trimester, as well as help families with dependent children paying certain household expenses, rent and utilities. The Medicaid Program helps to provide medical assistance to families and individuals who qualify in order to cover or aid in the cost of medically necessary services. Residents who don't want to apply online can download applications directly from the Access web page.
