Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) provides monthly benefits that help eligible low-income households buy the food they need for good health. For most households, SNAP funds account for only a portion of their food budgets; they must also use their own funds to buy enough food to last throughout the month. Eligible households can receive food assistance through regular SNAP or through the Louisiana Combined Application Project (LaCAP).

Louisiana Temporary Assistance to Needy Families

Louisiana Temporary Assistance to Needy Families

TANF is Louisiana\'s Temporary Assistance to Needy Families program. It is a group of programs and services that help people break away from what\'s holding them back. It\'s not a welfare program or a handout - it\'s real help for those who are ready to break the cycle of poverty. TANF funding is made available to different state agencies through the state budget. These agencies receive a specific appropriation for a particular service (like afterschool tutoring, pre-k, job training, etc). These agencies will then contract out to different service providers who can offer that service. Providers who receive a contract for services are selected through a competitive process, or request for proposals (RFP) process. This process usually happens around July 1 which is the beginning of the state fiscal year and is the only opportunity for funding to be dispersed throughout the year. If you have an interest in a particular service, you should contact the state agency who administers that particular TANF servicemost of the TANF initiatives are not operated through the Department of Social Services.
