Summary
This program supports demonstration projects that provide training and education to Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) recipients to prepare them for employment in the health care sector. Projects should serve a wide variety of individuals including those who have not completed high school, veterans, youth aging out of foster care, and victims of domestic violence. Training programs are expected to target skills and competencies demanded by the health care industry, support career pathways, and result in an employer- or industry-recognized credential. Projects should combine supportive services with education and training to help participants overcome barriers to employment.
