Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) – Food Assistance
SNAP is a federally funded program designed to help low income families buy nutritious food from authorized retailers, also known as “Food Stamps.”
Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) – Cash Assistance
TANF is designed to provide temporary cash assistance for needy families to care for dependent children in their own homes or in the homes of relative caregivers. TANF provides financial and support services such as childcare, transportation, and other services to low income families with children.
Medicaid – Medical Assistance
The Medicaid Program is a federal program administered by the state. Its purpose is to help meet the cost of medical services for individuals receiving public assistance payments, and individuals and families with low income.
Child Care Assistance
The Child Care Program assists low-income families, families receiving temporary public assistance and those transitioning from public assistance in obtaining childcare so they can work. Other services include resource and referral for parents seeking childcare and consumer information on the aspects of quality childcare. Resource and referral services are available to all Nevada families at no cost.
Energy Assistance (EAP)
The “Energy Assistance Program” provides a supplement to assist qualifying low-income Nevadans with the cost of home energy. Applications are evaluated year-round or until funding is exhausted. Eligible households receive an annual, one-time per year benefit customarily paid directly to their energy provider(s).
Child Support Enforcement Program
Nevada’s CSEP provides five basic services to both TANF and non-TANF families. They are 1) parent location; 2) establishing paternity for children born outside of marriage; 3) establishing financial and medical support orders; 4) enforcing support orders; and 5) collecting and distributing support payments. In providing these services, the birthrights of children are established, support is secured for children missing one or both parents, and the burden on Nevada taxpayers is reduced by offsetting the need for public assistance.
