State Assistance


You can apply for financial assistance (be it food stamps, daycare assistance, etc) from the federal government, but there are also a number of state assistance programs you MAY qualify as a single mother. Indeed, if you are looking for direct assistance of some sort, your state might be the best resource. Keep in mind that there are other private assistance programs out there you can look at such as charities, religious organizations, and woman’s shelters — so don’t stop your search for help here!

We’ve spent a good deal of time compiling a list of financial assistance resources for single mothers by STATE. We’ve tried to be as accurate as possible and have included as much information as we could find that each U.S. State offers to single mothers/single parents. If you know about additional state assistance programs we’ve missed, please do leave that information as a comment.
