2021 National TANF Directors’ Meeting Session: Virtual Engagement: Motivating Participants and Developing Partnerships in Tribal Communities

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families (ACF), Office of Family Assistance (OFA) conducted the 2021 National TANF Directors’ Meeting from September 20 - 24, 2021. During this concurrent workshop, panelists explored how Tribal TANF and NEW programs can consider expanding virtual services for participants to motivate them to pursue opportunities, especially those which may have been inaccessible to them previously. Speakers discussed a variety of strategies used in the past year to create virtual education and training opportunities and virtual case management services for clients, including how these offerings were developed, challenges along the way, witnessed successes, and recommendations for programs considering offering similar resources. This session concluded with a review of OFA’s Coaching for Success Learning modules, which program staff can use to provide virtual coaching and mentorship to participants.
