TANF | Temporary Assistance for Needy Families

Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) was created by The Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996, which is commonly know as welfare reform. TANF replaced the welfare programs known as Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC), the Job Opportunities and Basic Skills Training (JOBS) program, and the Emergency Assistance (EA) program. The law created TANF as a block grant that provides states, territories, and tribes with federal funds each year.

In Ohio, TANF is known as Ohio Works First (OWF) and is administered by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS) (click here).
