Jul 2018 |
Online Library

This report examines outcomes for families who enrolled in the TANF Home Visiting program between May 2015, when the program began, and October 2016. Outcomes for participating families during the 12 months following enrollment are compared to outcomes for similar families receiving TANF who did not enroll in home visiting. Parents enrolled in TANF Home Visiting were more likely than comparison TANF families to engage in WorkFirst activities that prepared them for work, including education and training. Parents enrolled in TANF Home Visiting were also more likely to use Working Connections Child Care subsidies. Future follow up studies will be necessary to understand long-term impacts of this program.
