The Family Investment Program (FIP) provides temporary financial and other assistance to low income families with children while they move toward self-sufficiency.
Applicants and participants of FIP must cooperate with the Department’s work and training program, PROMISE JOBS. As a condition of FIP eligibility prior to receiving benefits, applicants must meet with a PROMISE JOBS case manager to develop a self-sufficiency plan known as the Family Investment Agreement (FIA). The FIA outlines the steps the family will take to become independent of FIP assistance. Once FIP is approved, FIP recipients must follow the requirements of the FIA to continue receiving FIP. FIP assistance has a federal lifetime limit of 60 months of assistance received in all states.
To be eligible for the FIP program people need to meet financial and non-financial eligibility criteria. This includes being income and asset eligible, having a minor child, having a Social Security number, cooperating with the Child Support Recovery office, being a United States citizen or have a qualified alien status and being a resident of Iowa.
To apply online, please visit the DHS Online Application for State of Iowa Services (OASIS) online application portal.
