About this dataset
Temporary Family Assistance reports the number and rate (per 1,000) of TFA cases and recipients.
The TFA program operated by the Connecticut Department of Social Services (DSS) provides assistance to low-income families with children and pregnant women meeting specific eligibility criteria. TFA is funded through a federal grant given to states to run their own welfare program which is combined with State funds. TFA recipients are measured by individuals. TFA cases are measured by "assistance units" which are roughly comparable to households and can include multiple recipients. Connecticut Department of Social Services collects monthly and annual data and reports it annually. CTdata.org carries annual data.
