Grants by State

Here, we track key grants available for single moms and their families — the likes of TANF, food stamps, UI, Medicaid, among others and we crunch the numbers to analyze how much benefits single moms with two children can expect to get in each state, including what programs are available for single mothers in Puerto Rico.

For example, a single mother of two in the Golden State may receive $785 in cash assistance, $369 to buy food, up to $450 while searching for jobs and qualify for Medicaid if her gross income is no more than 133% of the federal poverty level.
