KENTUCKY TRANSITIONAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (KTAP)

KTAP is the monetary assistance program established by Kentucky using Federal funds from the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) block grant.  KTAP provides financial assistance to needy dependent children in Kentucky and the parents, or relatives, with whom the children are living if eligibility criteria are met.  The relative/applicant will be required to comply with Child Support Enforcement activities if the parents are not in the home.  Relatives cannot receive KTAP benefits for children if the parents reside in the same household.  This benefit is not available to fictive kin caregivers for fictive kin children, but may be available to caregivers for their own children.
