DCOM/BOM Applications

UMCARES is transitioning to a new program with GBHEM called Passage. At this time, we are NOT ready to move forward with Passage. However, if you have received an email enrolling you in Passage and you are experiencing technical difficulties, please direct questions in a support ticket. More information on Florida rolling out Passage as our application system will come later this year. Thank you for your patience and understanding!
