with KTAP you get a check for the child if you qualify but you have to agree to turn over the child support you recieve to the state because the money is for those not getting childsupport or getting less than they can get with KTAP. The parent also has to have no job and argee to enter a job training program. And yes a medical card is included.

I'm pregnant and on bedrest my job doesn't pay for any type of maternity leave. I'm with my boyfriend who is the baby's father he is trying so hard to find a job but can't with the economy the way it is. Does anyone know if I could get accepted for ktap without my boyfriend getting in any kind of trouble with child support because he is trying not just sitting on his butt.

The Job Shop (sp?) on Hwy 27, by (Baskin Robbins and Gold Star Chili) always has something posted on their marquee out front. Tell your boyfriend to give that a try. It may be a temp position, but anything beats nothing. And many times those positions are actually a temp to hire job if they realize he's a reliable worker. He won't know till he checks it out. Best of luck to you both!

yes you can get KTAP..it isn't just for single mothers, it's for familys too meaning fathers are included. They will help him with his job search as well. The only way they will go after him for child support is if you don't put him on your case, i.e say he doesn't live with you.

So you're advocating that someone LIE to get assistance? Way to go. That's what's wrong around here, people like this who get assistance when they have fudged their information to get approved for more than they should qualify for.

Correct me if I misunderstood your comment, but there is only one way to take it... It's abuse of the system, and you obviously approve of it due to your helpful "advise".

WTF????

I TOLD HER THAT KTAP WAS FOR FAMILIES TOO, NOT ONLY SINGLE MOTHERS...She is afraid they will go after her baby's dad for child support if she applies for KTAP, and I told her the only way they will do that is IF SHE LIES and says he doesn't live with her..then they will go after him child support, which she DOES NOT WANT...how the hell is that telling her to lie? I am telling her NOT TO, and that she doesn't NEED TO. That they will help them both.
I wrote " The only way they will go after him for child support is if you don't put him on your case, i.e say he doesn't live with you."
Again, I gave an example, if she says he doesn;t live her, they will go after him..uhmmm okay !!

Got'cha, but it read to me as if you were condoning that someone should consider lying to get assistance..

I am sick and tired of the abuse going on around here, and it's not only with KTAP or EBT cards. That's the cause of my anger over your comment. We ALL know that abuse is rampant and it needs to be stopped.

I'll tell you this much, if I am ever made aware that someone is abusing the system and I an prove it, their butts will be reported and I have no qualms about doing such. If nothing is done about the complaint within a reasonable length of time, I'll step up that ladder of command until something IS done.

I also know someone who is getting every type of assistance there is and it's supposed to be for their kids. One of the kids lives out of state and the other lives with the pastor of a church. It's unreal! I would also like to know who to call.

you must sign up for a work program and you have to work a minimum of 30 hours a week to qualify.they do go after the absent parent for child support and once support is ordered it is payed directly to the state.if the order is more or less for support from the abent parent,you will still only receive a set amount based on your income.example;if you are approved for 200 and they only collect 30$ from the absent parent you still get 200$ but if they collect 400$from the absent parent you still only recieve 200$ on the plus side you and your child will recieve a medical card.

I was wondering if I would possibly be eligible for financial assistance until I can get on my feet.
In my case, I am eligible for food stamps and my 1 yr old has a medical card. Her father and I are not married, but we live together because he is currently unemployed and cannot afford a place of his own. He is trying very hard, so I wouldn't want to go after him for child support. He keeps her while I'm at school and he helps out as much as he possibly can. We're both quite young and inexperienced (he's 22 and I'm 20), so the lack of a vibrant job history is really biting us in the butt. I've been looking for a job myself, but it would have to be semi-part-time because I attend college classes from 8am-3pm, not to mention, I have a 1 yr old daughter to take care of. My father is trying to help out with bills the best he can, but his resources are also very limited due to the dwindling economy. My daughter obviously wasn't a planned pregnancy, but I love her more than anything and I want to be able to provide for her the way she deserves. It's very hard to jump straight from high school to complete independence, but I'm trying my best.
What would you suggest I do, and what types of services could my family benefit from?

Honestly Trying, I can assure that you will qualify. It will be set up as a (W) case with both parents participating. One will work 30 hours a week and the other will work 20 at a non profit organization in the community. You will receive $200 per person for gas each month as well as your K-Tap program. You can only get K-tap for 5 years total. You will be set up with Vicky Cordell, the job coach as we call her and she will place you. With you going to school you can be eligible for the Ready to work program. With that you will be paid $8.75 an hour for your job placement (up to 30 hrs a week) That will not lessen your K-Tap but it will food stamps. This program is a wonderful boost for struggling families. I can also say NONE of the participants get the assistance without working for it, I say this because some doubt the usefulness of the program. This IS NOT welfare that was discontinued years ago.

I'm doing research on KTAP and have found out that people are getting all this welfare money, not even trying to look for a job, living with the children's father who is supporting their household and STILL getting the KTAP with child support included. Is that right... I just think people who can work, really should and not lie about their living arrangements while they live with the noncustodial parent and they mooch more money of the government. That's how we got into the mess we are in, or some of it anyway.
i agree, my daughters mom gets ktap and food stamps ,500 dollers a month for food,and 160 in ktap plus 2 other 250 doller checks a month for gas.oh and 2 medical cards. ok i pay for child care and preschool and have my daugther 3 days,this is because i work 50 hours a week and support my half if not more as a father.she sells her food stamp to buy pills and uses ktap to buy even more drugs and alcohol.further more her apartment which her parents own looks like a bad day at a crack house and is free cause her parents own the place. now someone tell me why this can go on and the living situation isnt ivestigated,but if she wants 1 phone call can have me investigated for non support? im sorry but i believe when someone goes on an assistance progam a social worker should make a visit once a week to the home of the person we all pay for to live.im sick of ppl living off the system and driving new cars when i stuggle to eat,and to pay bills. im sry madatory drug testing should be givin,weekly social worker visits. im sry but if your able to work and your kids have daycare then pls have the self respect to work ,we all do it why should u be able to sit and get free money when its causing the rest of us to suffer cause of laziness.

Is there anyway to get ktap without going after the bio father for child support? I ask because me and my child's father have an out of court agreement between us for child support.

My baby momma has threatened me with every gov. assisted program known to man. She won't get the amount she wants on child support, so now her threat is K-TAP. I just want to know who pays for it?
