The Work First Employment Program helps families get and keep a job. It requires personal responsibility. It supports the universal belief that work is the foundation of our society and that every job has meaning and purpose.
2. Who is eligible for the Work First Employment Program?
The Work First Employment Program helps families that receive Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) and are not exempt from the employment requirement. Services to help people stay employed are also provided to working families whose income is below 200% of the poverty level and received TANF during the last six months.
3. What type of supportive services are available to Work First Employment Program families?
Eligible families can receive assistance with training, education, transportation, child-care, or counseling if the service supports a self-sufficiency plan that was developed with the family.
