In conjunction with this, the state Department of Social Services (DSS) has implemented a "No Wrong Door" effort. Residents may now apply for SNAP, child care assistance, TANF, and the kinship care subsidy at any Office of Family Support (OFS) office across the state. Previously, applicants had to apply at the OFS office in the parish of their residence.
