Question from the Oklahoma Department of Human Services

Generally speaking, the U.S. General Accountability Office identified in 2016 that 16 states count third-party expenditures towards their MOE for TANF. The states that use the highest share of MOE funding are Georgia, Alabama, and Missouri.

More specifically, for Boys and Girls Clubs of America for MOE. “In FY17 and FY18, the Virginia Alliance of Boys and Girls Clubs received TANF funding to expand community-based prevention and mentoring services across the Commonwealth.” Arkansas previously used Boys and Girls Clubs of America, but this funding stream was discontinued. Previous, but unpassed, legislation would have authorized MOE funding with the use of local Boys and Girls Clubs in Georgia.
