Ohio Works First


Federal Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) is the federal program that funds many cash assistance programs across Ohio. The dollars provide a monthly check to low-income families with minor children at home.

In Ohio, the TANF program is called Ohio Works First (OWF). OWF provides temporary support to families while parents work their way toward becoming self-sufficient.



To apply for OWF or check your eligibility, go to Ohio Benefits Bank.

You can also apply in-person at Delaware County Job and Family Services between 8:00am-4:15pm, at 140 N Sandusky Street, 2nd Floor.

For questions regarding your application or benefits, please call 1-844-640-6446.
