Income Maintenance Programs

Ohio Works First (OWF)  builds on the Federal Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996. It replaces Aid to Dependent Children (ADC), the federal cash assistance program for needy families with dependent children. OWF provides time-limited cash assistance which allows participants to receive cash benefits while working or participating in training to develop skills that will help them become self-sufficient.

is administered by the ODJFS, under the supervision of ODJFS. ODJFS, working with each county's commissioners, enters into a Partnership Agreement  to define how ODJFS will support local efforts to move citizens from dependency (public assistance) to independence (self-sufficiency). The county commissioners can assign the responsibility to provide coordination services to any organization deemed appropriate. Historically, public assistance has been provided by CDJFS.
