Helping Alaskans Access Fundamental Public Benefits
Alaska Legal Services Corporation helps eligible Alaskans gain access to vital public benefits.
Attorneys and advocates at ALSC work to help Alaskans access lawful benefits. These benefits include: veterans benefits, healthcare, cash assistance, income maintenance, food assistance, unemployment compensation, and disability. Services for families and individuals are provided through legal advice, brief services and representation. These services provide Alaskans with access to food, shelter, and income that deeply impact the quality of their life.
Delay in SNAP Benefits
Anyone whose SNAP benefits are delayed is entitled to request a hearing about the delay. Requesting a hearing is as easy as filling out a one page form and emailing it to the Division of Public Assistance (DPA). State law requires DPA to process hearing requests in ten days, so filing the hearing request will make DPA act on your case. We prioritize helping Alaskans with food security, but the current backlog is stretching our resources. You can help us by filing your own fair hearing request. If you have email access, it is likely that you can file the hearing request faster than we can do it for you. Visit alaskalawhelp.org to file your own fair hearing request. There are detailed instructions on how to do so.
