3.12 Working with TANF Agencies to End Family Homelessness

The Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program provides states with resources to help low-income families achieve greater self-sufficiency. This is often an underutilized resource in the effort to end family homelessness. This workshop will examine how homeless service leaders have successfully persuaded TANF officials in their community to reallocate TANF resources locally to help families escape homelessness.
