Public assistance programs are government welfare programs such as food stamps and cash aid which are available through counties in the United States. Welfare reform requirements set by the federal government under southerners Clinton and Bush ended Aid for Families with Dependent Children and replaced it with Temporary Assistance for Needy Families. A person receiving public assistance must be working or participate in Welfare to Work activities for 32–35 hours per week to continue to receive the cash aid. There is also a total lifetime limit of 60 months to receive the assistance.[1]
