Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)

Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) provides financial assistance to families with dependent children while emphasizing work participation, education, family stability and responsibility.

We identify and focus on employment goals, economic and social obstacles, and the health, safety and well-being of children and families. Caseworkers monitor families as they move through their Tribal Service Plan toward their ultimate goal of self-sufficiency and independence from program services. Eligible families have a 60-month lifetime limit.

Please review the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families section under Client Services in Tlingit & Haida's Program Profiles booklet for eligibility requirements. The booklet may be accessed by clicking here.
