DHHS Economic Assistance Office
Opening Monday at New Location

Omaha – A different location for the Department of Health and Human Services’ Economic Assistance office at 1500 North 24th St., Suite 102, will open Monday (3/9), said Jill Schreck, deputy director of Economic Support.
Clients may drop off applications at this location, speak with a worker, or use a computer to apply for and check benefits online, she said.
“Having an office in North Omaha has always been important to us,” Schreck said. “This new location allows us to continue to provide in-person services to this area of Omaha.”
The office was temporarily relocated to another location while renovation of the new location was being completed by Douglas County.
