Food assistance (formerly food stamps) is a monthly benefit for eligible individuals and families to purchase food. Benefits come in the form of a plastic card called the Ohio Direction Card.
When families use the card at the grocery store, the purchase is automatically deducted from their monthly benefit.
Families and individuals can receive this benefit. Eligibility is complex -- based on family size, income, resources and expenses. Healthy people under the age of 60 may have to participate in a work activity to receive benefits. To find out if you may be eligible, use the food assistance calculator http://www.snap-step1.usda.gov/fns/

Medicaid is state and federally funded health care coverage. Stark County Job & Family Services administers Medicaid programs that may provide health care coverage for:
Medicaid is very broad, with two major covered groups, Aged, Blind, and Disabled (ABD), and Covered Families and Children (CF&C). Those who claim to be disabled, but who are not eligible for a regular Medicaid program may qualify through the Disability Determination Area https://www.starkjfs.org/human-services/dda process.
Most Medicaid recipients receive benefit coverage through a Managed Care Plan (MCP) https://www.starkjfs.org/human-services/managed-care-plans
There are several Medicaid programs. To learn about the different programs, read About Medicaid http://medicaid.ohio.gov/FOROHIOANS/Programs.aspx
Temporary Assistance to Needy Families(TANF) is the federal program that funds many cash assistance programs across Ohio. The dollars provide a monthly payment (through the Chase Ohio Pathway Card or direct deposit) to low-income families with minor children at Caution-home.
In Ohio, the TANF program is called Ohio Works First (OWF). OWF provides temporary support to families while parents work their way toward becoming self-sufficient. OWF cash recipients are required to sign and comply with a self-sufficiency contract with our work program/JOBS area. The self-sufficiency contract requires each individual to engage in work-related activities.
Families may receive cash assistance for 36 months (which does not have to be consecutive). That assistance can be extended if circumstances warrant. There are two types of extensions:
Eligibility is based on the family's income and the number of people living in the home. In addition, adults must cooperate with the work program/JOBS area to meet participation requirements. Click here https://www.starkjfs.org/human-services/jobs-program for more information on work program requirements.
