> Arizona Cash Assistance Program
The Arizona Cash Assistance Program provides temporary cash assistance and supportive services to children, individuals, and their families. The Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) EDGE System is used to issue cash assistance payments. Participants are able to access their benefits from their assigned account by using a plastic debit card called QUEST . The debit card can be used at Automated Teller Machines (ATM) and Point of Sale (POS) devices located at most stores.
