All families have a basis of eligibility for MFIP and may apply. MFIP defines a family as a minor child or a group of minor children related to each other as siblings, half-siblings, step-siblings, or adopted siblings, along with their birth, step- or adoptive parent(s) or other caregiver(s). For information as to who is eligible for state-funded MFIP, see 0013.03.06 (MFIP Basis - State-Funded Cash Portion). See CAREGIVER in 0002.09 (Glossary: Calendar Month...) and MINOR CHILD in 0002.41 (Glossary: Medically Necessary...). For specific information on who is in the assistance unit, see 0014 (Assistance Units).

Families also include:

A pregnant woman who is not a minor and has no other eligible children and her spouse, if living with her. See 0013.03.03 (Pregnant Woman Basis – MFIP/DWP).


A minor caregiver's parent(s) who has no other minor children. See 0014.03.03 (Determining the Cash Assistance Unit).


A minor caregiver and child.

People who get MFIP may also be eligible for health care. See the Insurance Affordability Programs/Health Care Manuals.

If certain conditions are met, the unit may also be eligible for SNAP without requiring a new application. See 0005.09.06 (When Not to Require Completion of an Application), TEMP Manual TE02.08.143 (Food Support When MFIP Is Closed).
