Job & Family Services Public Assistance Monthly Statistics
Public Assistance Monthly Statistics (PAMS) Report


Since 2002 the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services has posted the Public Assistance Monthly Statistics Report (PAMS).  The report provided counties, stakeholders, and constituents the opportunity to view monthly case summary data for Ohio Works First (OWF), Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and Publicly Funded Child Care (PFCC).  The report included numbers for recipients, assistance groups and expenditures.  

In August 2018 the State of Ohio transitioned, statewide, to a new eligibility system, Ohio Benefits.  This system replaced the Client Registry Information System and Eligibility (CRISE).  With the adoption of the new system the PAMS report has been replaced. 

New Report

The new report, the Caseload Summary Statistics Report, provides data for OWF, SNAP and PFCC on a state and county level.  The data will reflect data 2 months prior (example: November data will be posted in January).
