Louisiana residents seeking food stamps, welfare payments and other social service assistance can now apply online.

The Louisiana Department of Children and Family Services, the state's social services agency, announced Friday that the application is available at www.dcfs.louisiana.gov/ApplyOnline.

Completed applications will be reviewed by department staff. Follow-up interviews can be done over the phone, without an applicant ever needing to travel to a social services office.
