Partial Government Shutdown Effect on Work Supports & Tax Credits

Currently, the partial shutdown of the federal government does not effect any of the work support programs and tax credits included on this website and screening too, with the exception of SNAP. Click here to find out more about how the shutdown is affecting SNAP in Minnesota. At this time, families and individuals should keep receiving benefits they're currently accessing and can and should apply for benefits they may be eligible for and file their taxes. As the shutdown continues, Children's Defense Fund-Minnesota is monitoring the effects on the programs and tax credits included on this tool and will post any updated information as it becomes available.
