Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)

The TANF database contains demographic characteristics for families receiving assistance under the TANF program. TANF case record information is reported to the national TANF database by states and territories on a quarterly basis. The database consists of active cases (families who were receiving assistance for the reporting month by the end of the sample month) and closed cases (families whose assistance was terminated for the reporting month, but received assistance in the prior month). States have the option of submitting all active and closed cases or a sample of these cases.
