Temporary Assistance Needy Family (TANF) - Low-Income Working Individuals help For Car Repairs

GrantSeeker1234 started this conversation

Department of human services can get your car repaired, as long as your working at a job and you meet be Low-income, they still have funds available for that and they provide other services too.  You ask for TANF :    

How is eligibility determined for a TANF family?

When an application is received, a worker will conduct an investigation to see whether the family is eligible according to all TANF eligibility factors. The parent or caretaker relative will receive a notice by mail within 30 days telling whether the family is approved for a TANF money payment, the amount, start date, etc.

Factors involved in determining whether the family can be eligible for TANF include:

    Deprivation: The child or children must be deprived of one or both parents by reason of absence, incapacity or unemployment.

    Income: The TANF family's total income must be considered in determining whether the basic needs of the child can be met. Certain income can be disregarded but all must be reported.

    Resources: In order to be eligible, the TANF assistance unit must not own property (other than the home) or have cash or other resources that have a combined value of over $2,000.

    Child Support Requirements: A parent or relative who applies for and accepts a TANF money payment for children due to the continued absence of a parent must assign to the state support rights for the children. The parent or relative must also assist the state in obtaining support from the absent parent, including establishing paternity for children born out-of-wedlock.                                                       
  • TANF WORK PROGRAM CASE MANAGER (CM)

    Once you are referred to the TANF Work Program, your Case Manager will schedule an appointment for work program orientation and assessment. Your Case Manager will help you make an Employability Development Plan (EDP) to determine the work activities and type of services needed for you to get ready for work and find employment. Your Case Manager can help you with transportation, child care and work related expenses if you need these services to be able to work.

    When you begin the TWP activities, your TANF and SNAP eligibility reviews will also be handled by your Case Manager

Kathyannboyts...RUN as far as you can from them!! Because, there is no way, the replacement of a water pump should cost as much as a used transmission...useless your driving a foreign car? Most water pump/part usually cost in range of $175 rebuilt/refurbished, $75-80 at car salvage yard...IF, you can find a good trust worthy mechanic to install it for you, should cost with labor (IF YOU, buy the part!) ball park estimate and part situation...$250-400 depending on make of car. Actual Auto dealerships WILL CHARGE OUTRAGEOUSLY!!! Try'n find a certified trust worthy mechanic that will install it for you. Ask around network!

We've been through 4 cars, and not because of neglect, but because every car we have gotten has major problems but was our only choice. I take the local rtd for a 1 and half hour trip to drop off and pick up my kiddo from school everyday that I have her (shared custody) that means in the cold weather too and in a vehicle it would only take 20min. We just want to be able to get on our feet, and we are trying so hard! I'm too young to fail, I just need a helping hand so it's possible to keep going. God bless.

I agree with you, Gretta. I work for minimum wage and have 3 kids. Single mom and get food stamps. My sister makes good money and occasionally takes us out to eat, buys me a pair of nice shoes or takes me to get a nice haircut or dye myhir. Whatever i choose. She likes seeing my kids and i look nice. The fact that people are on assistance and look nice does not mean they are taking advantage of the system.i hatr when people judge without knowing other people's stories.

I understand your frustration. There are still honest hard working people that are down on their luck who need a little help. That is what the welfare system is for. I have known people that have needed the help. Worked for companies for years and their positions were eliminated. They have a mortgage, children, and working 2 jobs. But still not enough to make ends meet. They are embarrassed every time they go through the checkout line with their access card. There is no reason to scream and yell in the welfare office. There is guidelines. But maybe the person with their nails done was a gift to a single mom who is doing her best, or has a job interview and someone wanted to give her something that would make her feel more confidant. There is people on welfare that cut coupons, go through adds every week trying to stretch what they are given. There is people that take advantage of the system. But not everyone!

Well actually the people really do exist there from old pages and they were somehow oddly merged when this site changed about a year ago because I actually just found the main page I have been posting off others threads for years with many many people and if they are no longer active your post doesnt show in the main feed it crazy especially to me because ive been here 2+ and just now seeing some people who also been here along time I have many "old" friends on this page but there post dont show on main page either. If you get a chance go to my post on Inspiration click her name visit her page and youll see what im talking about she been here years but none of her post show to this page which is supposed be main page for everyone Its over a million people really on these pages just cant link all the old with the new
