The Family Investment Program (FIP) is Iowa's Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) program. FIP provides cash assistance to needy families, as they become self-supporting so children may be cared for in their own homes or in the homes of relatives.
The Monthly Public Assistance Statistical Report: Family investment Program (A-1) is a monthly summary of FIP (Family Investment Program) program participation, Statewide and for each Iowa county. Breakouts are reported for the Regular FIP program and the Two Parent FIP program. For each program, data are provided on the number of cases (families) served, the number of recipients served and the dollar value of the payments provided. Also shown is the average cost per family and the average cost per recipient. This report may also be known as the A-1 report.
A case is defined as a family group who receives FIP assistance together. A recipient is an individual on a FIP case.
