TANF-Funded Workforce Training

Reports & Graphics


Percentage of state Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) and Maintenance of Effort (MOE) expenditures on non-assistance spent on workforce training and education, FY 2011.


States have the flexibility to use federal TANF and MOE funds to support a variety of services in their TANF programs, including education and training. Education and job training programs are critical in helping individuals on TANF assistance to develop the required job skills needed to join or rejoin the workforce with sustainable employment. Participation in education and training activities helps build skills and credentials that are valued in the labor market, and is especially beneficial to TANF recipients lacking education qualifications.

States are assessed on the percentage of state TANF and MOE expenditures spent on workforce training and assistance.
