How soon will I get benefits?

How much TAFDC will I get each month?

Your TAFDC grant is based on how many people are in your household. The At-A-Glance chart shows the highest amount of TAFDC you can get each month.  A household of 3 people in private housing can get up to $633 a month.  This amount may be lower if anyone in your household has other income.
