Welcome to the OASIS Assessment
Here's how the OASIS assessment works
We will ask you a few questions about your household and evaluate your answers to see what services you might be able to receive from the Iowa Department of Human Services (DHS). You need to enter correct information about the members of your household so we can make the best recommendations to you.
At the end of your assessment, you can apply for Food Assistance (FA), the Family Investment Program (FIP) and Child Care Assistance (CCA).
The information you enter is confidential. If you do not want to apply for any programs, your information will be deleted at the end of your assessment. You can always apply for any service provided by DHS. Your OASIS assessment results will only tell you what you or your household might be able to receive. You must submit an application for services and may have to meet with us to determine your actual eligibility.
