Relatives of the children placed in their care, may apply for Temporary Assistance for Needy Families. Contact the local OKDHS office to speak with a TANF worker in regards to the requirements that must be met in order to qualify for this payment. Once your home is approved as a kinship resource, you must notify TANF immediately. Resource parents are not eligible to receive a TANF benefit and the maintenance payment at the same time. Should that occur, an overpayment will be created, and all overpayments must be repaid in full.
