What is Tribal TANF?

Tribal TANF is a federal and state funded program that provides time-limited assistance to needy families with children, in an effort for those children to be cared for in their homes or in the homes of relatives. The Tribal TANF program was created by Native Americans to provide cash aid assistance and supportive services to meet the specific needs of Native American families. Tribal TANF is designed with the flexibility to address and focus on a variety of positive cultural traditions.
