The Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program is an income-based program that provides families with monetary assistance. The goal of this program is to help end families’ dependency on federal benefits by promoting work and two-parent households. The program also strives to help keep more children in their own homes or their relatives’ care. If you think your family might qualify for help, you can apply for TANF directly through your state office.
