To be eligible for assistance, there must be a demonstrated need. For example, a change in life circumstance (loss of job, severe illness, etc.) or be currently receiving assistance from one or more of these programs – Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), Aid for Dependent Children, Foster Care, Medicaid, etc.
