The state's welfare reform program, WorkFirst NJ, emphasizes work as the first step toward building a new life and a brighter future. Our goal is to help people get off welfare, secure employment and become self-sufficient, through job training, education and work activities.Under the supervision of the NJ Division of Family Development (DFD), the 21 county welfare agencies administer the Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) program. These agencies also administer the WorkFirst NJ General Assistance (GA) program - which provides welfare services for individuals and couples without children -in most cases, although about one-third of New Jersey's 566 municipalities maintain their own welfare offices to serve those clients. For more information, contact your County Welfare Agency or local welfare agency.
