Using TANF To Finance Out-of-School Time and Community School Initiatives. Strategy Brief, Volume 1, Number 2. Tools for Out-of-School Time and Community School Initiatives.
The Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) block grant has great potential for funding out-of-school time and community school initiatives. While the flexibility that states have in allocating TANF funds presents significant opportunity for innovation, it also presents a dizzying array of policy options. This strategy brief presents general considerations for using TANF to support out-of-school time and community school initiatives. The brief explores three strategies for using TANF funding, discusses considerations for the use of each strategy, and provides examples of innovative state approaches. (Contains 16 resources.) (EV)
