Improving how you access services and how we deliver services.
NC FAST (North Carolina Families Accessing Services through Technology), is for households applying for Food and Nutrition Services only. The NC FAST Program is designed to improve the way North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NC DHHS) and the 100 county departments of social services conduct business. NC FAST introduces new technological tools and business processes that will enable staff to spend less time performing administrative tasks and more time assisting families.
The ePASS system can currently be used to apply for Food and Nutrition Services (FNS) and Medicaid.
If you do not have a Social Security Number, benefits are available on the 3rd day of every month.
Remember to check your balance before you shop.
