Full Description:

Temporary Aid to Needy Families
Denver Human Services helps low income individuals and families apply for financial assistance through the Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF)/Colorado Works (CW) program, which provides monthly cash assistance to eligible participants who have followed an application process.
When you apply for TANF/CW, you are also applying for Food Assistance, Medicaid, and Child Support services. In addition, childcare assistance through the Colorado Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) and other support services may be available while you prepare for or look for a job.
To be eligible for TANF/CW, you will be required to participate in a work-related activity; the required number of hours per week will be determined by the age of your children and whether or not you are in a two-parent household. Eligible work-related activities include (but must be approved): full-time employment, part-time employment, community service, education programs, job skills training, job readiness, or job search. If you are a parent under the age of 18, you must attend high school or a GED program and live with your parents or other approved adult.
Families are eligible to receive TANF for no more than five years (60 months) in a lifetime.
If you choose not to apply for TANF/CW, you may still apply for Food Assistance, Medicaid & Medicare, and/or Child Care Assistance. In addition, you may be eligible for a County Diversion grant — a one-time payment designed to help low-income working families pay for Section 8 housing deposits. Please call 720-944-3666 for more information.

Tips For Prompt And Professional Assistance
1. Make an appointment - Always attempt to make an appointment. Oftentimes this will save you hours waiting in lines. When on the phone make sure you ask for the documentation needed in order to receive assistance.

2. Do not be late for your appointment - This tip should speak for itself.

3. Dress appropriately - If you want to be treated with respect, dress as appropriately as possible. We are not saying wear a suit. Just make sure you and your clothes are clean and non offensive. We have found that clients who dress in this manner have a better chance of receiving aid.

4. Bring all pre determined documentation - Bring all of the documents you were advised to bring from your appointment phone call. Without them, you will not receive aid.
