Transitional Aid to Families with Dependent Children (TAFDC) - Overview - Massachusetts

 

Logo of Massachusetts Department of Transitional AssistancePeople in need in Massachusetts may receive financial support and special services through programs offered through Transitional Aid to Families with Dependent Children (TAFDC). (TAFDC is Massachusetts' implementation of the Federal TANF - Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program.) The Department of Transitional Assistance (DTA) office determines eligibility and provides these public assistance services.

TAFDC provides time-limited cash benefits to certain families with dependent children and pregnant women in the last 120 days of pregnancy. It is a federally subsidized program for dependent children who are deprived of support from a parent for any of the following reasons:

      Divorce

      Desertion

      Separation

      Incapacity

      Incarceration

      Unemployment

TAFDC recipients must meet work program requirements. Eligible recipients also receive medical assistance (known as MassHealth) and may be eligible to receive food stamps.

TAFDC benefits are time-limited for non-exempt families.

In order to receive TAFDC, an applicant or recipient must meet all applicable financial eligibility and non-financial eligibility requirements.
