Public Assistance Programs are funded by state and federal funds to help people through difficult times in order to get them back on the road to self-efficiency. After eligibility has been determined, help is provided through MO HealthNet, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), Food Stamps, Child Care Allowance, Energy Assistance and other similar programs. When an applicant becomes eligible for public assistance, he/she agrees to follow certain rules. Failure to abide by those rules may be a violation of state and/or federal law!

Cases of suspected fraud should be reported IMMEDIATELY! Please help preserve the integrity of these programs.
