Colorado Works/TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families)

Through the Colorado Works Program, counties provide family stabilization assistance and other supportive services to enable eligible low-income families to find and retain employment and to provide for their children. Assistance and services provided may include child care, housing and transportation, cash payments, counseling for those experiencing domestic violence, mental health or substance abuse problems, and services aimed to reduce the incidences of out-of-wedlock births and encourage the formation and maintenance of two parent families.
