How To Apply For TANF

The TANF program requirements are setup at the state level. To qualify for TANF you must be a resident of that state and you must be a US citizen or eligible non-citizen. Once you submit your TANF application, the office that handles the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program will review your case and determine if you meet the program requirements.
