TANF: A Pathway to Ending Family Homelessness

August 05, 2015

Temporary Assistance for Needy Family (TANF) funds can play a significant role in ending family homelessness.  The TANF workshop at NAEH examined successful partnerships between homeless service providers and TANF agencies to rapidly re-house families. Housing Support for CalWorks (TANF) and the TANF Family Stabilization Program, two initiatives out of California, were among the promising program models that were explored.
