Securely Apply Online

You can conveniently apply via one of our secure online forms below. If you have any questions about the application process, please contact one of our Client Services associates at 612-767-7333.

At this time, we are only able to accept new HIV/AIDS clients on to service. We are unable to accept applications for people living with cancer, MS, ALS, ESRD, CHF & COPD. This is due to funding and capacity challenges; it is NOT a permanent change. As soon as we can start taking new applicants for all diagnoses again, we will communicate that widely and put the application links back up here on our website. In the interim, if you are looking for food resources for you or a patient/client, please check out our Client Resource Guide or visit Hunger Solutions. If you have any questions, please call our Client Services team at 612-767-7333. Thank you!

UPDATE REGARDING ELIGIBILITY FOR RYAN WHITE SERVICES​

Centralized Eligibility (CE): CE is a simplified enrollment and renewal process for Ryan White services, which allows all your Ryan White providers access to your Ryan White eligibility information through a secure database. This means that, instead of sending eligibility verifications to each individual provider (i.e. Open Arms), you can now apply for and renew your eligibility for Ryan White services once a year during your birthday month directly through DHS.

Questions regarding your eligibility for Ryan White services? Contact your designated eligibility specialist:

  • Last names that begin with A – E: Kenya Lopez, 651-431-3928
  • Last names that begin with F – LEA: Ashley Crosby, 651-431-6456
  • Last names that begin with LEB – REE: Aimee Gunderson, 651-431-4224
  • Last names that begin with REF – Z: Linda Atlas, 651-431-2408
