TANF South Dakota

Information on TANF South Dakota Program.  South Dakota TANF is also called South Dakota Cash Assistance

TANF South Dakota is a support service for South Dakota families.  The purpose of TANF (Temporarily Assistance to Needy Families) South Dakota is to provide financial and medical assistance to needy dependent children and the parents or relatives with whom they are living.  Eligible TANF households receive monthly cash and Medicaid benefits. TANF uses state funds to provide cash assistance to families.

Under TANF, eligible adults are limited to receiving benefits for a total of 60 months in their lifetime, including months of TANF-funded assistance granted in other states. Once this limit is reached, that adult and all members of his or her FA household are ineligible to receive any more TANF benefits. The 60 months need not be consecutive, but rather each individual month in which TANF-funded benefits are received is included in the lifetime count
