DFC MISSION STATEMENT

The La Porte County DFC is a single point of entry for many social services available to Hoosiers. For those of you who would like to apply for Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (formerly known as AFDC or welfare), the Food Stamp Program, Medicaid or other types of assistance, you must apply at the DFC office.

To apply for assistance, please visit our office. Once an application is filed with our office, you will be assigned a caseworker and an appointment will be set up for you. Your caseworker will discuss your needs and assess if you are eligible for services. This initial interview with your caseworker will take from 1-1 & 1/2 hours.

Your eligibility is determined within the following time frames:

  • Food Stamps – 30 days
  • TANF/Medicaid – 45 days
  • Disability Medicaid – 90 days
