As Congress finalizes the extension of the TANF program for the remainder of FFY 2012 (ending September 30, 2012), it can restore the TANF Supplemental Grant.  In Federal Fiscal Year (FFY) 2011, Congress did not fully fund the TANF Supplemental Grant for the first time. Georgia received $12.7 million less, which Department of Human Services (DHS) replaced with surplus federal TANF funds. For FFY 2012, federal legislation that extends the TANF program (through February 29, 2012) does not include the TANF Supplemental Grant. Download Fact Sheet.
