The Transitional Employment Assistance (TEA) Program helps economically needy families with children under the age of 18 become more responsible for their own support and less dependent on public assistance. TEA provides monthly cash assistance to eligible families to help meet the family’s basic needs. TEA also provides supportive services such as child care assistance and employment related services while the parent or other adult relative works toward increasing his or her earning potential. State law limits the receipt of TEA benefits to 24 month lifetime limit.
You can have some income, including earnings, and still be eligible to receive TEA benefits, if your countable income is less than the income standard. You can have resources (cash, bank accounts, property not used as a home, etc.) if the total value of these resources does not exceed $3,000. TEA cash assistance is also available to help meet the needs of children who are being cared for by non-parent adult relatives. Assistance to such relatives may be provided for the children without regard to the time limit.
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) helps low-income people buy the food they need for good health. SNAP benefits supplement an individual’s or a family’s income to help buy nutritious food. Most households must spend some of their own money along with their SNAP benefits to buy the food they need.
You may be able to receive SNAP benefits if you are working for low wages; working part-time; unemployed; receiving public assistance payments; living with a disability; are older; or homeless. All participants must meet financial and non-financial criteria.
