The purpose of a Diversion payment is to address an immediate financial need and thus, eliminate the need for a family to rely on monthly Families First payments.  Eligible clients who can utilize one-time assistance and who meet certain criteria may opt to receive a lump sum Diversion payment in exchange for full Families First benefits.
