Though Coronavirus/COVID-19 first touched our community more than a month ago, Dutchess County Government remains open for business. While we may have limited our in-person interactions with residents, the vital services, including those provided by our Department of Community and Family Services, are still being fulfilled at the high-level residents come to expect from us. The addition of the NYDocSubmit app is another great tool for Dutchess County residents to easily submit their documents to DCFS and facilitate the benefit process. I urge all DCFS clients to utilize the new app, as Dutchess County Government remains ready to serve.
The NYS application can use used to submit a number of different types of required documentation. The app is not monitored for emergencies, and residents must call DCFS at (845) 486-3000 to request help with an emergency situation.
