Transportation Tuesday: K-TAP Kentucky WORKS Program

Posted on

There’s a new module on the Transportation website! The K-TAP Kentucky WORKS Program is a service available to Kentuckians who are unemployed, under-employed, or about to become unemployed and are pregnant or responsible for a child under 19 years of age. This program offers monthly transportation support payments and yearly auto repair funds to work-eligible individuals.

The Kentucky Transitional Assistance Program (K-TAP) is a program that provides financial assistance and support to Kentucky families in need. The Kentucky WORKS Program is a program available to those receiving K-TAP benefits and provides job-seeking assistance. The goal of this program is to enable work-eligible individuals to support their families through self-sufficiency. 

This service is available to Kentuckians who are unemployed, under-employed, or about to become unemployed and are pregnant or responsible for a child under 19 years of age. Kentucky WORKS offers payments for transportation- and travel-related payments necessary to work, participate, or prepare to participate in Kentucky WORKS program activities. Participants can receive up to $200 per month for participating in four or more K-TAP activities per month or $15 per month for participating in three or less activities per month. 

This program also offers $1,500 per year in auto repair and associated expenses. This can include repairs to make it functional (brakes, transmission or engine repair, mufflers, or tires) or other expenses like property taxes, vehicle registration and license fees, and auto liability insurance.
