How Do I Apply?
The first and most important step you and your family can take to get help is to register with the Waiting List/Prioritization of Urgency of Need for Services (PUNS) database. To register, you must meet with a Pre-Admission Screening/Independent Service Coordination Agency (PAS/ISC) to see if you are eligible for services.
Search the DHS Office Locator for the PAS/ISC agency closest to you.
