The Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) collects your private information in this application to check for eligibility with our programs and for reasons listed in the DHS Notice of Privacy Practices.
Additionally, your information may be released to law enforcement, individuals whose work assignment requires access, persons authorized by state or federal law or pursuant to a court order, or by your written consent.
You can refuse to provide this information, but without it, DHS cannot determine your eligibility for our programs, and you will not be able to receive services. Additionally, if you give us wrong information on purpose, you could be investigated and charged with fraud.
