MFIP and DWP are Minnesota’s cash assistance programs for families with children. The programs differ in eligibility requirements and how long the family can receive assistance. Families receiving MFIP or DWP are eligible for child care assistance through the MFIP/DWP child care assistance subprogram if they are participating in authorized activities. See Chapter 4.6 (CCAP authorized activities).
Families participating in Family Stabilization Services (FSS) are eligible for child care according to the same rules and guidelines as other MFIP and DWP recipients. Child care is available for activities included in an FSS Employment Plan. See Chapter 4.6.3 (Authorized Activities within an Employment Plan).
