Families must:
  • live in Connecticut;

  • be working or attending a temporary family cash assistance (Jobs First) approved education or training activity; and

  • meet the program’s income requirements.

Children must:
  • live in Connecticut; and

  • be under age 13, or if the child has special needs, be under age 19.
