State Human Resources Commissioner Nancy Buckner said the grant
will allow families to apply anywhere that has Internet access.
Currently, they have to fill out paper forms and take them to
county offices of the Department of Human Resources.
Governor Bob Riley said the grant is part of an effort to make it
easier for families to access state services.
The $600,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture will
be paid in equal installments over three years.
