The Family Investment Program (FIP) is Iowa's Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) program. FIP provides cash assistance to needy families, as they become self-supporting so children may be cared for in their own homes or in the homes of relatives. Data are provided on the number of cases (families) served, the number of recipients served and the dollar value of the payments provided summed by month and county starting January 2011 and updated monthly. A case is defined as a family group who receives FIP assistance together. A recipient is an individual on a FIP case.
