PeerTA Webinar: Possibilities for Coordination Between TANF, Child Care, and Workforce Development

On July 26, 2017 from 3:00-4:00 PM ET, PeerTA hosted a webinar: Possibilities for Coordination Between TANF, Child Care, and Workforce Development. Child care subsidies are critical for families receiving TANF cash assistance, as well as those transitioning off assistance, to be able to participate in employment activities, to maximize educational activities, and achieve better employment outcomes. Studies show that parents receiving child care are likely to have more stable employment, which enables them to support their families and gain increased financial security. This webinar explored how states have coordinated TANF and child care services to enhance workforce development outcomes. The webinar also examined the research associated with TANF and child care to highlight best practices. Presenters included Heather Hahn, Senior Fellow, Urban Institute; Erin Oalican, Reach Up/TANF Program Director, Vermont Department for Children and Families; and Kathy Bell, Program Field Representative, Oklahoma Department of Human Services.
