State of Oregon Benefits

Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)

​​The TANF program provides cash assistance to low-income families with children while they strive to become self-sufficient. Cash assistance is intended to meet a family’s basic needs such as food, clothing, shelter and utilities. Most cash benefits in Oregon are issued via an Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card. This is also known as an Oregon Trail Card.

Child Care Assistance

The Employment-Related Day Care program (ERDC) helps eligible low-income families pay for child care while they are working. ERDC is a subsidy program, meaning eligible families still pay part of the child care cost. ERDC also works with providers and other child care partners across the state to help families find and keep good child care, improve the availability of quality child care in Oregon, and to develop resources for parents and child care providers.

Food Benefits

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) offers food benefits to eligible, low-income individuals and families.

Health Insurance

There are a variety of options available for health care coverage for your relative child. OregonHealthCare.gov can help get you to the appropriate option for your family.
