The Minnesota Family Investment Program, or MFIP, is the state’s welfare reform program for low-income families with children. DHS helps families move to work and focuses on helping families. It includes both cash and food assistance. When most families first apply for cash assistance, they will participate in the Diversionary Work Program, or DWP. This is a four month program that helps parents go immediately to work rather than receive welfare.
