Wyoming POWER (TANF)

Updated June 28, 2019

TANF is a program for low income families with children. In Wyoming, the TANF program is called POWER, Personal Opportunities With Employment Responsibilities.

POWER is a time-limited cash assistance program designed to assist families near the poverty level to become self-sufficient through a combination of employment, cash support and other supportive resources.

All eligible families in Wyoming receive at least 24 months of assistance but no more than 60 months in a lifetime.

The law requires all TANF applicants ages 16-59 who aren’t disabled to participate in work-related activities and cooperate with child support as a condition of eligibility.
