To receive Families First cash assistance, all adults and minor parents, who are not exempt and who are included in the assistance unit, must participate in a Personal Responsibility Plan (PRP) that includes 30 hours per week in work activities.  Of the 30 hours per week, a minimum of 20 hours must be in core activities.  The remaining 10 hours may be in core or non-core activities.


Note:  Minor caretakers may meet the work requirement by either attending high school or its equivalent, or they may choose to attend 30 hours of work activity.
