Residents in need of public assistance should contact the Loudoun County Department of Family Services, which coordinates the distribution of benefits according to the individual's level of need. The eligibility workers follow federal, state, and local policies (which have certain income / resource limits) to determine benefit amounts for each program.
Eligibility workers determine each client's eligibility for various public assistance programs, including:
Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)
Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP- formerly Food Stamps)
In addition to public assistance, the Department of Family Services also coordinates the distribution of limited local resources to residents meeting eligibility criteria. Please refer to the Community Support Program for additional information.
