The Alaska Temporary Assistance Program (ATAP)
Provides cash assistance and work services to low-income families with children to help them with basic needs while they work toward becoming self-sufficient. This program is provided under the federal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) block grant.
ATAP changed the traditional focus of the state’s public assistance program for needy families to an employment-focused program from an entitlement under the Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) program. Temporary Assistance stresses family self-sufficiency through employment.
Child Care Assistance PASS II
If you are transitioning off of the Alaska Temporary Assistance Program, you may be eligible for assistance for up to twelve months from the PASS II Child Care Assistance Program.
The Child Care Assistance Program provides assistance for child care expenses to eligible families that meet the income criteria. Child Care Assistance in Alaska is known as (PASS) “Parents Achieving Self Sufficiency.”
The Municipality of Anchorage Child Care Assistance Program offers PASS II and PASS III assistance. The Program provides coverage for children under the age of 13 and children with special needs up to age 19. The PASS 1 program provides child care assistance for families receiving benefits under the Alaska Temporary Assistance Program and is available through the Alaska Public Assistance office at 269-6000.
