Ohio Works First (OWF) Builds on the Federal Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996. It replaces Aid to Dependent Children (ADC), the federal cash assistance program for needy families with dependent children. OWF provides time-limited cash assistance which allows participants to receive cash benefits while working or participating in training to develop skills that will help them become self-sufficient.
