Information on TANF New Hampshire Program. New Hampshire TANF is also called New Hampshire Financial Assistance for Needy Families (FANF)
TANF New Hampshire is a support service for New Hampshire families. The purpose of TANF (Temporarily Assistance to Needy Families) New Hampshire 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 month in which TANF-funded benefits are received is included in the lifetime count
