Temporary Assistance for Needy Families is a Federal and State-funded program that provides direct cash assistance payments to families, refers recipients to DHS’s First-to-Work program, and teaches necessary family skills. TANF and TAONF provide monthly cash benefits to families for food clothing, shelter, and other essentials.
For help, call 1-855-643-1643 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
To qualify for this financial assistance, a family must include children under the age of 18 and have gross income below 185% of the 2006 Federal Poverty level (FPL). For a household of three persons, this means the monthly gross income must be less than $2,941 and the net income must be under $610, if the household includes an employable adult.
For households where all adults are disabled, care is required for a disabled household member, or there is a child younger than six (6) months of age, the net income must be under $763 per month. Effective April 18, 2013, assets are disregarded under the TANF and TAONF Programs. Families may receive no more than sixty (60) months of cash assistance benefits in their lifetime through the TANF or TAONF Program.
