Levy DCF to close by March

-A A +A

The Florida Department of Children and Families will be closing its ACCESS service center for public assistance in Levy County, located at 124 N. Main St. in Chiefland, by March 2014.

“The reason we are doing this is that the ACCESS service centers have   become less necessary for our customers,” explained David Abramowitz, DCF Northeast Regional Director.  “DCF has changed the way in which people apply for and receive public assistance. Since 2005, people have been able to apply for food stamps, Temporary Cash Assistance and Medicaid on any   computer with Internet access at our website, myflorida.com/accessflorida.”

DCF understands that there are people in need who may not have Internet access in their homes. That is why the department has partnered with 49 community centers, food banks, churches and libraries in Levy, Dixie and Gilchrist counties to provide computers for peopleto apply for economic assistance.

“We are reaching out to community leaders and legislators to help us find more community partners,” Abramowitz said.
