Cash Assistance

HHS offers cash assistance to Texans going through tough times. The Texas Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program offers cash to help pay bills, buy food, and help see your family through.

  • TANF helps families pay for basic living needs.
  • The Repatriation Program provides loans to qualified U.S. citizens and their dependents who are returning from a foreign country because of poverty, illness, war, invasion or similar crisis, or who are without resources.
