Do you know a family in need due to COVID-19? They may be eligible for TANF Disaster Relief Funds.

These one-time payments are intended to stabilize families that have been impacted by COVID-19, so families are able to maintain self-sufficiency moving forward.

Eligibility Requirements:

• Must present a real need for services directly relating to COVID-19 (overdue utility bill, rent or mortgage that is due/past-due due to reduced hours or layoff due to COVID-19, etc.)
• Family assistance unit must contain an eligible child, per Colorado Works Program Rules
• Family’s annual income must be below $75,000
• Must reside in El Paso County at time of emergency
• Must prove lawful presence in the United States per Colorado Works Program Rules
• Must not be receiving any other form of TANF

Individuals that meet the above criteria are encouraged to apply for Colorado Works online at http://ow.ly/3skB50AiWfU -an eligibility interview will then be conducted with applicants over the phone. Applicants are assessed for the program through the eligibility process, however, applicants can also self-identify by discussing the program with their technician during this interview. Please share with families and other service providers.
