Nebraska Aid to Dependent Children (ADC)

Nebraska Aid to Dependent Children (ADC) provides small cash assistance to low-income families with children up to 18 years of age.

It is used to pay for basic living expenses like rent, utilities, food, clothing, and other necessities and is limited to no more than 60 months.

Work-eligible recipients are required to participate in Employment First program, Nebraska’s employment program tied to ADC that provides training, education, and employment-related activities.

Unless otherwise exempt, participants are required to complete at least 30 hours a week of designated work activities to remain eligible for assistance.


How much do you get for ADC in Nebraska? #


How much money you get for ADC in Nebraska largely depends upon your family’s income and size. A family of three in Nebraska with no income is eligible for $468 each month.

In addition to cash aid, families receiving ADC may qualify for Medicaid and food assistance through SNAP. Child care subsidy is also available to the family if their income doesn’t exceed 125% of the federal poverty level. The family pays a portion of the child care costs based upon a sliding fee scale but not exceeding 20% of their income.
