I Need to Appeal DHS's Denial or Termination of my Benefits
Did the Michigan Department of Human Services (DHS) deny your application for benefits, or terminate benefits you were receiving? This toolkit can give you general information about the different kinds of benefits available from DHS. There is also an interview to help you appeal DHS's decision to deny or terminate your benefits.
Food Assistance Program (FAP, or Food Stamps)
The Food Assistance Program (FAP) helps eligible families buy food. It is a monthly allowance of money placed on a Bridge card. A Bridge card is like a debit card, and the government puts money onto the card to pay for groceries. A Bridge card can be used at most grocery stores and markets.
Automated Online Form to Request a Hearing from the Department of Human Services
Use this form to request a hearing from the Department of Human Services if your public benefits have been terminated, reduced, denied, or sanctioned, or if it's been too long and you haven't gotten a decision on your application for benefits.
Automated Online Waiver/Suspension of Fees & Costs Form
Use this online interview to draft the form you use to ask the court to waive or suspend the filing fees and other costs in your case. If you receive public assistance, or are unable to pay the fees and costs in your case, the court can decide to let you file without paying.
