Mecklenburg County Community Support Services Women’s Commission Division in Collaboration with Mecklenburg County Department of Social Services are currently accepting applications for TANF/DV funds. Applications are being accepted from social workers who may be working with TANF or TANF eligible participants that are currently or formerly victims of Domestic Violence. This assistance is designed to help eligible individuals become or maintain self sufficiency. These funds may be used to help with rental assistance, utilities, storage, or fleeing the abusive relationship.
In order to be eligible for the these funds the participant must be receiving Work First Family Assistance (TANF), or be TANF eligible, which means the house hold income would fall below the 200% federal poverty guidelines and there are minor children in the home.
