Public Assistance Guide

The 50 States Public Assistance Guide is an essential and central part of the Helping Americans Find Help (HAFH) platform. You can visit the main State page by clicking on the US map above or the State name button to find information about available public assistance programs in a specific state.

The HAFH was started in early 2014 by a team of people who had experienced rough patches in their lives and felt the need to find help. It took time and hard work.

The federal government agencies describe the available assistance programs on their own websites. While each state has its own set of public assistance programs, the information about these programs may not always be easily accessible or user-friendly. In addition, there are assistance and resources from many non-profit agencies, local charities, and community action agencies that take time to research and are hard to find. Simply put, a comprehensive one-stop “50 States Public Assistance Guide” wasn’t available.

That’s how Helping Americans Find Help was started. The HAFH is a one-stop comprehensive guide that consolidates information from federal government and state agencies sources with direct verified links to the eligibility checks and application forms.

Public assistance programs can be complex, with eligibility criteria, application processes, and available benefits varying from state to state. People may move between states for various reasons, such as employment opportunities or family reasons.

A comprehensive help website such as HAFH and its 50 States Public Assistance Guide could be handy for individuals and families transitioning between states. This guide could ensure they are aware of the assistance programs available in their new location and facilitate comparisons between states’ public assistance programs, highlighting differences and similarities.

Overall, this website attempts to aggregate and disseminate available government and other information on public assistance in the USA. We, the HAFH team, hope that this centralized guide could help individuals navigate this complexity more efficiently by providing clear and concise information. Good luck in searching for help!
