Divisionary Work Program (DWP)
DWP is a four-month program that helps low-income Minnesota families find jobs. The goal of DWP is to help parents immediately go to work rather than receive MFIP cash assistance. Parents are expected to sign an employment plan before their family is approved for DWP. After families have an employment plan, they can receive financial assistance to meet their basic needs and get other supports, such as food support and child care and health care assistance. To apply for DWP or MFIP you must contact your county human services agency.
