ADMINISTRATOR'S MESSAGE

Welcome to the CNMI Nutrition Assistance Program’s website which is continually being developed to provide online viewers with useful information about the NAP program including guides and forms for applying for nutrition assistance in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. This site brings parity of the Nutrition Assistance Program to modern world of online technology and as intended to provide real time information to viewers. This website will also be our eventual gateway to the NAP online application console which will soon be available for first time applicants that will guide them through the process of submitting an application and documentation via the NAP portal for citizens. A portal is also being developed for retailers to interact with the NAP office for submitting required reports and to receive updated retailer related information.

The Nutrition Assistance Program (NAP) utilizes the DCCA’s website www.dcca.gov.mp and the NAP’s face book page www.facebook.com/nap.cnmi/ to disseminate program information and as a means to communicate with applicants and recipients. We add this NAP website as an addition to the platforms to communicate with you. We hope you find the information you are searching for in this site or that it may assist you with application information. We strive to serve every recipient and applicant to the best of our abilities and we will continue creating ways to provide efficient NAP services. We have not suspected that a catastrophic disaster of the Covid-19 would have severely impact our world the way it did, but it presents itself to us as a lessoned experience that we must prepare for this type or for any type of disaster to prevent any means of disruption of services to continue assisting families in need. I am well pleased with the opportunity to launch this site as part of NAP’s efforts for enhancing program services and improving customer interaction. I encourage any feedback or suggestions you may have to improve the quality of this site to better serve you.

Respectfully,

Walter Macaranas
Administrator
