Job Coaching and Incentives

One successful strategy used by both TANF agencies and contractors involves incentives combined with job coaching and mentorship to help TANF clients retain their employment. Coaches can provide support for clients struggling to overcome internal or external barriers or requiring information on how to handle life or on-the-job situations. Several agencies and contractors have implemented incentive systems that apply to TANF recipients as well as to staff whose job is to support clients once they have found work.
