Family Assistance Program
The Family Assistance Program (FAP) provides cash assistance to eligible households with dependent children that are headed by adults who have:
- a permanent disability;
- long-term obstacles to employment; or
- are over age 60.
The program also provides cash assistance for children living with a non-parent caretaker relative, such as an aunt, grandparent or adult sibling.
There are no work requirements for adults receiving assistance through FAP.
