Financial Assistance

The Minnesota Family Investment Program (MFIP) is the state's welfare reform program. It helps families and pregnant women who have low income go to work and move toward financial stability. The program provides employment services and income assistance. The Diversionary Work Program (DWP) helps parents go to work quickly.
