Improving Access To Work Supports
The Great Recession has demonstrated the importance of work supports to low-income working families. Recently, foundations and government agencies have intensified efforts to improve access to work supports while streamlining their delivery.
A policy brief prepared by South by North Strategies, Ltd. for The Working Poor Families Project explored ongoing initiatives and examined how the Project’s state partners could support and advance efforts aimed at strengthening public work support programs. In particular, the brief identified five state policy areas for the Project’s state partners to consider and potentially pursue.
