Created as a response to the changing needs of students as a result of welfare reform, the Students Assistance Program, which started as the TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families), began offering services to students receiving the (TANF) government cash grant in 1998. Many changes to public assistance programs, the economy, and the needs of STLCC students have resulted in the expansion of the services and the populations helped by the Student Assistance Program.
