Program Description

Kentucky Transitional Assistance Program (K-TAP) is the monetary assistance program established by Kentucky using Federal funds from the TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) block grant. K-TAP provides financial and medical assistance to needy dependent children in Kentucky and the parents, or relatives, with whom the children are living. K-TAP also helps families find jobs or get training that leads to a job.
A family can only get K-TAP for 60-months (5 years) in a lifetime. Each month a family gets K-TAP counts toward the 60-month limit. A family does not have to get K-TAP for 60-months straight. For example, a family can get K-TAP for 24-months and stop. Later, the family can get 36-more months.
K-TAP payments to families are based on family size and income. In addition to the monetary grant, K-TAP recipients may also be eligible for supportive services such as childcare and transportation assistance through the Kentucky Works program. Relocation Assistance is also available to qualified K-TAP recipients, as are the educational bonus, work incentive bonus, and Employment Retention Assistance.
