Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF)

The TANF federal allocation, which states receive each federal fiscal year (October – September) has several components. For Georgia, the relevant components are the TANF Federal Block Grant and the TANF Supplemental Grant.  Although Congress extends the TANF program, without the TANF Supplemental Grant, Georgia loses $37.3 million federal funds.
