TANF stands for Temporary Assistance for Needy Families. 477 comes from Public Law 102-477, allowing tribes to consolidate federal programs. The federal 477 programs that are under Tulalip 477-TANF are TANF, Native Employment Works (NEW), Job Placement & Training (JPT), and Workforce Innovations Opportunities Act (WIOA).
TANF is offered as cash assistance, supportive services, and employment assistance. The 477-TANF Program offers two types of cash assistance; Child Only (Children in placement homes) and Family Grant (Parents of dependent children). Depending on the case type, applicants must meet income, residency, and tribal affiliation requirements. The best way to determine eligibility is to complete an application and submit all required documents. Each circumstance is unique, and TANF may require further proof depending on the circumstances. The amount a child or family receives in cash assistance depends on the type and income. The income from the previous month is used to process the next month’s payment. The maximum amount received per family unit (Child Only and Family Grant TANF) is $1,500.
