OFA Webinar: Needs, Challenges, and Promising Approaches to Improving Engagement of Special TANF Populations: Two-Parent and Child-Only Families, September 2018

In this OFA-sponsored webinar, Insight Policy Research and Mathematica shared information drawn from recent interviews with TANF administrators and staff on the needs of two-parent and child-only families and the barriers these families encounter in their engagement with TANF. Further, representatives from TANF agencies in Mecklenburg County (NC) and Riverside County (CA) discussed their experiences and highlighted promising approaches they are using to improve engagement with these special populations. After this presentation, Insight and Mathematica facilitated an interactive discussion with webinar attendees on the needs of two-parent and child-only families and promising practices on how to engage these families. The webinar was held on September 12 from 1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. EDT.
