Minnesota Family Investment Program (MFIP)

The Basics

The Minnesota Family Investment Program (MFIP) helps families work their way out of poverty. MFIP gives money to families to pay for basic needs like food, clothing, and rent. It also helps with job training and finding employment.

MFIP is Minnesota’s Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program; it used to be called "Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC)."
