  • I know what TANF is because i recieve it, but i have no idea what the other one is. I get state help so that I can go to college and end up with a job that can support myself and my daughter after school. They have helped me out alot so that I can better myself and not be a high school drop out with a baby. I mean its not like im rolling in the dough lol, but it makes it so i have a place to live, clothes for my daughter, food on the table and gas in the car. Plus it isnt a perm. the max for my state is like 5 years and then your on your own.
