AFDC Aid to Families with Dependent Children; federal/state program designed to provide support for children who are not receiving sufficient financial support from their parents.

AFFIRMATION To make a formal declaration of fact or attest to the truth of an affidavit or testimony. Used in place of an oath where religious restrictions prevent oath-taking.
