WorkFirst Performance Measures

WorkFirst is Washington State’s program to assist recipients of Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) to meet their goals and provide well-being for their family. WorkFirst is a collaborative effort with families, WorkFirst case managers, and local community and partner agencies to build a stable foundation for employment, provide employment and training opportunities, and ultimately serve as a gateway to financial independence. DSHS is required to develop and publish outcome measures for the entire WorkFirst system as well as for local community and partner agencies. These measures are available each quarter to assist program staff, administrators, and partners in managing program performance.
