BISMARCK, N.D. — North Dakota provides many services to state residents who wish to conduct their business online instead of in person.

State leaders suggest residents utilize these services whenever possible in support of the state of emergency caused by the novel coronavirus COVID-19. Here is a list of state agencies that provide online services to the public.

Department of Human Services

North Dakotans are encouraged to use the department’s self-service portal at www.nd.gov/dhs/eligibility/index.html to apply for Medicaid health care coverage and other help, including the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), child care assistance and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF).

Some individuals can also use the portal webpage to complete required reviews, report changes in income, household size and other circumstances, and to securely upload documents.

Parents can also find resources and information and can access online Child Support services at www.childsupportnd.com. Parents with questions about their case can also call Child Support customer service at 701-328-5440, toll-free at 800-231-4255 and 711 (TTY).
