▶️ Oregon launches app for people to manage state benefits


The Oregon Department of Human Services on Friday announced the launch of a new app for people to manage medical, food, cash and child care benefits they receive from the state.

ODHS says the Oregon ONE Mobile app is available for free in the Apple and Android app stores. Before using the app, people will first need to apply for benefits online, in person or by phone.

The app’s development was partially funded by the United States Department of Agriculture’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, ODHS said.
