This report describes the goals and program elements of P/PV's State Workforce Policy Initiative, a five-state initiative designed to develop effective employment retention and skills-upgrading strategies to assist Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) recipients and other low income job seekers in earning enough to move out of poverty. While no two strategies are alike, each state's strategy takes into account the needs of local employers, as well as the skills barriers and record of poor job retention present among so many entering the workforce. The report describes each state's individual strategy and recaps the key issues faced in the work first policy climate.
