State Information

The Public Assistance Reporting Information System (PARIS) is an information exchange system designed by the Administration for Children and Families to provide State Public Assistance Agencies (SPAAs) with client data as a result of state and federal computer matching. The resulting matches are used by participating SPAAs to validate client reported circumstances and identify possible candidates for erroneous payments.

The three parts of PARIS are:

  • The Veterans Administration Match
  • Department of Defense/Office of Personnel Management Match (regarding active or retired military and Federal employees)
  • The Interstate Match (duplicate payments made to the same client in more than one State)

The participating programs that utilize PARIS data are:

  • Medicaid
  • TANF
  • Workers’ Compensation
  • Child Care
  • Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (formerly known as Food Stamps)
