Risk, Reach, and Resilience


Statewide, nearly half of children under age 6 in low-income families are covered by the Minnesota Family Investment Program (MFIP), the state's version of the federal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program. It supports low-income families with children and aims to help those families move toward financial stability through work. Parents are supported through cash and food assistance, as well as employment services. MFIP is calculated as the percentage of all children under age 6 in families with incomes at or below 125 percent of the poverty level.
