The MDHHS-1171 contains an application for assistance and program specific supplement forms. Be sure to read the information booklet before you sign the Assistance Application. The entire application for assistance, as well as the applicable program supplement form(s), must be printed, completed and delivered to the MDHHS office closest to you.
