TANF Oversight Board
The Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) Oversight Board is a nine-member board made up of public and private professionals appointed by the Governor and the Legislature.
The TANF Oversight Board is required to review, recommend and approve proposals for TEA program statewide implementation and the integration of TEA program services with all other workforce services offered in local centers. The TANF Oversight Board is responsible for seeking ways to continuously improve the TEA program and engage the resources of government, business, faith-based, and community organizations in order to empower Arkansas' TEA recipients and low-income families to achieve long-term self-sufficiency and improved quality of life. The Board will also develop measures and benchmarks to gauge the progress of the TEA program; submit reports to the Governor and to the House Committee on Public Health, Welfare, and Labor and the Senate Committee on Public Health, Welfare, and Labor regarding the operations of the Transitional Employment Assistance program, the Arkansas Work Pays program, the Career Pathways Initiative, the Community Investment Initiative, and other TANF initiatives. The law also requires the Board to develop a vision and blueprint for the Transitional Employment Assistance Program in order to:
Provide effective services to the Transitional Employment Assistance Program and Arkansas Work Pays Program clients
Improve performance on the Transitional Employment Assistance Program client outcomes; and
Integrate Transitional Employment Assistance Program services, Work Pays Program services and Department of Workforce Services.
