Solving Family Homelessness with TANF and Workforce Services Briefing
April 23, 2013
Time: 9-10:30 am
Hall of States
444 North Capitol Street, Room 233/35
Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) and Workforce Services resources are demonstrating great promise in helping families. One promising approach is rapid re-housing which provides short-term rental assistance, housing search, case management and employment services to help families reconnect to housing faster. This can play an incredibly important role in improving the outcomes for homeless families and reduces both the time families are homeless and the strain on overtaxed shelter and homeless service programs.
This briefing will provide an opportunity for federal policymakers and advocates to learn more about this approach and how it is working in communities across the country.
