The Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program, known in New Mexico as NMWorks, provides cash assistance to families who qualify. The Human Services Department (HSD) helps families determine whether or not they qualify for cash assistance. This monthly cash assistance benefit should be used to meet family needs such as housing, utilities, and clothing costs.
