Governor Files Legislation to Restore Clothing Allowance

Last Thursday Governor Deval Patrick filed legislation to increase funding for specific programs in this year’s state budget, which is generally referred to as a supplemental budget. In the legislation, the Governor proposed restoring the TANF Clothing Allowance to $150 for each child in a TAFDC household. Yesterday we were told that the Department of Transitional Assistance will be issuing the clothing allowance for $150 this September!
