TANF
  • PURPOSE:

     

    The Arkansas Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program will collaborate with the Arkansas Adult Education to provide assessment, education/training, and skill development to low-income individuals in Arkansas. Our purposes are to assist needy families so that children may be cared for in their own homes or in the homes of relatives and also to reduce the dependency of needy parents by promoting job preparation, work, and marriage.
