Work Participation - MFIP and TANF

The Minnesota Family Investment Program (MFIP) and the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) Program offer employment-related services for clients making the transition from public assistance to work.


This section is for DEED staff, partner organizations and contractors who provide these services. It includes secure access to data that is important for program administration. Access to the data is not available to the general public.

Data Dictionaries

To draw attention to columns in the files, we have assigned ‘yellow’ for financial workers and ‘green’ for providers. These are displayed on the file layout page in the data dictionaries for each file. These fields are highlighted as they represent some key elements for each of the data sets. If these data are not correct, it will cast a negative impact on the outcomes. Consider this a starting point for your review especially if you are overwhelmed by the magnitude of the data sets.

Note that those columns highlighted aren’t the only ones that need your review. Take time to review the dictionaries and file layouts so that you're familiar with the changes and potential impact on your data.

The following Excel spreadsheets are available for download:
