West Virginia’s Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) Program is WV WORKS. It is based on the goals of assisting economically dependent and at-risk families to become self supporting, enhancing the well-being of children, and on assisting families near the poverty level to remain self-sufficient.
WV WORKS provides monthly cash assistance to eligible families. Most people who receive a monthly WV WORKS check also receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits and Medicaid, but these are not guaranteed based just on receipt of a check.
In order to qualify for this benefit program, you must be a resident of West Virginia; responsible for a child under 19 years of age; a U.S. national, citizen, legal alien, or permanent resident; have low or very low income; and be either under-employed (working for very low wages) or unemployed. There is a $2,000 asset limit with one vehicle excluded.
You must also complete a program orientation, Personal Responsibility Contract (PRC) and Self-Sufficiency Plan (SSP) to meet the eligibility requirements.
