TANF Work Programs

The Department of Social Services offers families in crisis temporary financial assistance through its TANF program. In order to help families regain financial independence, DSS may require applicants to enroll in the Jobs Upfront Mean More Pay program (JUMMP).

JUMMP works with hundreds of employers throughout South Carolina to find meaningful employment for individuals struggling to meet their family’s basic needs each month.

Adults are required to participate in work-related activities in order to continue receiving TANF benefits.
