From the Document: "The Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program has been missing from efforts to ensure people who need help during this economic and health crisis caused by the coronavirus are getting it. TANF fits into a continuum of aid programs--including unemployment insurance (UI), the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), also known as food stamps, and more--that are designed to help people experiencing hardship pay for necessities and find work. While TANF cannot simply replace them, it can act as a much-needed supplement for many families when those other programs come up short, and it can be targeted to meet the specific needs of the community that it is serving." This material 'TANF is a Key Part of the Mix of Aid Programs Supporting Families During COVID-19 Crisis' was published by the Center for American Progress.
