  • Colorado Works TANF

    Colorado’s Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) program, also known as Colorado Works, provides financial assistance, job preparation and work opportunities to needy families with children on a temporary basis, to achieve economic and family stability. The amount of financial aid provided is based on family size, income, resources and ages of the children.

    TANF recipients may receive benefits for no longer than 60 months. During this 60 month time limit, participants are required to participate in work activities and cooperate with Child Support Services.
