hi, Did you also check the fluids in rad. Sure your rad can be ok but what about prestone antifreeze. To find out for certain that it is not the thermostat usually can take out put in boiling hot water and if it opens up then you know it is still good but if it does not open than need new thermostat. just make sure your fluids are topped in vehicle.

 in response to jrr...   My name is Kirsten. My family situation is bad, currently. My mother has been sick for the past 7 years, and she gets one Social Security check on the first of the month. We used to have the added income of my step-dad working, but he moved out and now my mom and I have to live on her one check. We don't have a car, so we have to rely on neighbors to take us to the store, but lately that's not been enough. We can't rely on them forever. I graduated from high school this year, and I need to get a job to bring in more income, since I was recently put on probation. The added cost of that is making it impossible for us to save money for a vehicle of our own. We live out in Pleasant Valley, far from the inner city, and since we don't have a car my job opportunities are slim to none. I was wondering if there was any way you could possibly help us out, it would be very much appreciated. If you have any information for me please contact me at kirsten_royals@yahoo.com or 806-383-4984.

Department of human services there in MS can get your car repaired, as long as your working at a job, they may still have funds available for that aand they provide other services too.  You ask for TANF :    

How is eligibility determined for a TANF family?

When an application is received, a worker will conduct an investigation to see whether the family is eligible according to all TANF eligibility factors. The parent or caretaker relative will receive a notice by mail within 30 days telling whether the family is approved for a TANF money payment, the amount, start date, etc.

Factors involved in determining whether the family can be eligible for TANF include:

    Deprivation: The child or children must be deprived of one or both parents by reason of absence, incapacity or unemployment.

    Income: The TANF family's total income must be considered in determining whether the basic needs of the child can be met. Certain income can be disregarded but all must be reported.

    Resources: In order to be eligible, the TANF assistance unit must not own property (other than the home) or have cash or other resources that have a combined value of over $2,000.

    Child Support Requirements: A parent or relative who applies for and accepts a TANF money payment for children due to the continued absence of a parent must assign to the state support rights for the children. The parent or relative must also assist the state in obtaining support from the absent parent, including establishing paternity for children born out-of-wedlock.
Back to Top

How much will the TANF payment be?

The amount of the TANF payment is based on the family's income. When the income does not meet the TANF Program Need Standard, the family may be approved for a money payment up to the State maximum for that household size. Monthly payments in Mississippi are limited to no more than:

  • $110 for the first person
  • $36 for the second person
  • $24 for each additional person

    TANF WORK PROGRAM CASE MANAGER (CM)

    Once you are referred to the TANF Work Program, your Case Manager will schedule an appointment for work program orientation and assessment. Your Case Manager will help you make an Employability Development Plan (EDP) to determine the work activities and type of services needed for you to get ready for work and find employment. Your Case Manager can help you with transportation, child care and work related expenses if you need these services to be able to work.

    When you begin the TWP activities, your TANF and SNAP eligibility reviews will also be handled by your Case Manager.
