Equity Portal - Social Services Hoosier Health

In August 2018, 10 optional questions were added to all online applications through the state for health coverage, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF).

It does not represent anyone who applied in-person, by telephone, by main, or any other method. In 2019, 79% of those who applied for SNAP, TANF, or health coverage applied online. The assessment does not impact eligibility for SNAP, TANF, or health coverage. Applications are filed at a household level and may represent several individuals.

The application includes demographic information for the person who applied and not all members of the household. An individual may complete an assessment every time they apply for health coverage, SNAP or TANF. If an individual completed the survey more than once with multiple applications for assistance, each set of survey responses is represented on the dashboard.

If an individual completes more than one assessment when applying for multiple programs, only one assessment will be represented in the data.

To ensure personally identifiable information is protected, all data are presented in aggregate and data representing 20 or fewer individuals in any county will not be displayed (the demographic field will show as 0). Because some survey responses are not included in the individual race categories shown here, total counts from the individual race categories add up to less than the total for the "All" race category.
