Indiana TANF

Updated June 14, 2019

TANF is a time-limited program that provides cash assistance and supportive services to assist needy families with children in Indiana.

Benefits vary based on the family’s countable income up to the maximum allowable amount of $288 for a family of three.

As a condition of eligibility for TANF cash assistance, you’re required to participate in job search services available through IMPACT, a component of Indiana’s Welfare-to-Work program.1

Failure to complete the Applicant Job Search program without good cause will result in the denial of your application.

To see if you qualify, apply for, and manage current TANF benefits, visit Indiana’s FSSA Benefits Portal or for assistance, call

FSSA’s Division of Family Resources

Child care services are available for recipients who work or are participating in IMPACT through the county Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) Intake Agent.
