TANF in the state of Kentucky is distributed through the K-TAP and Kinship Care programs. If your family receives Kinship Care benefits, K-TAP or is part of the Kentucky Works program, then your family is considered to receive TANF benefits; therefore, you would answer yes to this question.
Please include any health concerns (e.g. Diagnosed Asthma, Seizures, etc), developmental concerns and/or First Steps involvement in the application notes so that we can provide you with all necessary health paperwork at your intake appointment.
