OFA TANF Disaster Response Highlights

TANF Disaster Response Highlights from the Office of Family Assistance provide a broad overview on how some state and tribal TANF programs responded to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many programs’ responses were informed from lessons they learned in responding to prior disasters. The information within these highlights has been shared to assist with the development of adaptable approaches and proactive disaster responses. Such preparations help ensure the uninterrupted continuation of services to the populations supported by TANF programs during crises like health pandemics and natural disasters.

TANF Disaster Response Highlights have been developed on the Colorado Department of Human Services, the Illinois Department of Human Services, the Maine Department of Health and Human Services, and the Morongo Tribal TANF Program.
