This session is the ninth webinar in the Enough is Known for Action series for the youth community, hosted by the U.S. Department of Labor's Employment and Training Administration (ETA) Division of Youth Services and Regional Offices to inspire strategic planning and delivery of services under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA).


In partnership with the Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, which administers the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program, the Division of Youth Services is hosting a webinar on ways in which WIOA and TANF programs can work together to create pathways for low-income youth in the workforce system.

Through your participation on the webinar you will:

  • Learn more about TANF and WIOA from federal agency leadership;
  • Hear from state and local workforce agencies and TANF agencies working in partnership to serve youth;
  • Share how you can better link together TANF and WIOA.
