SAIL helps you to apply, renew, or learn about various social services offered by the State of Maryland. To read more before filing an application, https://www.marylandsail.org/Default.aspx. Information given to us in SAIL is kept strictly confidential. Unless you choose to file an application, we do not keep any information. If you cancel the session or if the session suddenly ends by itself, we do not keep any information.
SAIL screening will ask questions about your family members. You must enter correct information for SAIL to properly determine what programs you may be eligible for.
The answers you give to the questions are private. We do not share your information with anyone. We do not keep the information that you enter on the screening form unless you apply for benefits right after you complete the screening. If you do not apply the information is erased when you leave SAIL screening.
If you choose, you can skip the screening questions and go right to the application.
Please note: If your household wants to apply for Food Stamps and is in an emergency situation (very little money or shelter expenses that are more than your gross income) you may have the right to get food stamps quickly.
