Today, in partnership with CLASP and the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, NSC released a fact sheet outlining areas where Workforce Innovation and Opportunities Act (WIOA) and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) alignment can occur. The fact sheet supplements the upcoming webinar discussion.
WIOA offers new opportunities for the workforce system and TANF programs to work together. Regardless of whether a state opts to develop a unified plan or a combined plan under WIOA, TANF representatives should be included in the planning process from the outset to help define TANF’s role in achieving the state’s goals, and to identify and address potential barriers to collaboration.
The Aligned by Design: WIOA & TANF webinar features national and local experts to address key principles for aligning human capital investments to produce better outcomes for individuals and local economies.
