Temporary Assistance

There are two main Cash Assistance programs that provide money for basic living expenses.

Family Assistance (FA) is for needy households containing children, and is funded 50% by the Federal government for up to 5 years in a person's lifetime. The remaining 50% is split equally between the State and Local government.

Assistance (SNA) is for needy individuals or childless couples. SNA is funded 50% by the State and 50% by the local government. There is no lifetime limit. In addition, a family that uses their 5-year FA benefit becomes automatically eligible for SNA. In Cayuga County, a household of four typically will receive no more than $667.00 per month to pay all their living expenses. If the family has any earned income, they receive less.

Food Stamps
Food Stamps is a Federal nutrition assistance program which helps low-income households meet their nutritional needs. A family of four with no income could receive at most $434.00 in Food Stamps. The same family could earn up to $1,800.00 a month and still receive some Food Stamps. WIC is also available to many families and can supplement Food Stamps.

The Home Energy Assistance Program is federally funded program that helps low-income households pay their home energy costs. Heap is usually available from November through April.
