Webinar: MyFreeTaxes Tax Season 2016 Launch

This webinar is sponsored by United Way and will be held on Thursday, October 29, 2015, from 3:00 – 4:30 PM, EST.

This fact sheet provides a brief overview of available federal tax incentives and what they mean to employers.

GAO Report on TANF: Action Is Needed to Better Promote Employment-Focused Approaches

The Government Accountability Office (GAO) issued this report, GAO-15-31, on Dec. 19, 2014, which focused on the Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) program and state agency efforts to support TANF beneficiaries enter or return to employment. Of the 10 programs GAO examined, 9 drew on the expertise of partner organizations— including community college systems, workforce agencies, and nonprofits. The programs also benefitted from decisions by state and local policymakers to dedicate funds—including TANF funds—for the selected programs. However, many program design and funding choices are left to the states, and GAO’s prior work has shown that state use of TANF funds for more costly welfare-to-work approaches can compete with other allowable uses of TANF funds. Second, TANF’s main performance measure does not necessarily encourage agencies to use certain approaches that incorporate longer-term education and training or treatment services. Third, little incentive exists for TANF agencies to evaluate their programs. HHS’s authority over many aspects of TANF is limited and it has not proposed legislative changes to address these areas. Without federal action, adoption and evaluation of promising approaches may continue to be limited to select states and localities, leaving TANF recipients in other locations without access to these promising approaches.

January CoP Theme: Tools and Resources for Financial Health Support to AJC Customers

The Disability and Employment Community of Practice is focusing January on asset development and financial health strategies made available through American Job Centers (AJCs(, including financial capability training and free tax preparation. Since the inception of the Department of Labor’s Disability Employment Initiative (DEI), a primary focus of grant activities has been directed to asset development in the understanding that employment stability and retention is frequently dependent upon the individual’s ability to manage income. This is particularly the case for individuals with disabilities or other significant challenges to employment who often enter or return to work in low wage positions that provide minimal income to sustain the fundamental needs of housing, transportation, food and health care. Individuals with disabilities receiving benefits are additionally in need of benefits planning advice that has often been incorporated in the DEI Disability Resource Coordinator skills made available in grantee workforce investment areas. DEI’s Technical Assistance provided by the National Disability Institute has developed resources and tools to assist grantees as well as the workforce system at-large. These include a number of asset development 30 Second Trainings which can be very helpful in introducing financial well-being to AJC customers. To access these trainings, please click on View Page Now or go to: https://disability.workforce3one.org/page/tag/1001315838823672830 Please continue to check the Disability and Employment CoP throughout January for other asset development resources.

How VR Services Affect Employment Outcomes for Adults with Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral Palsy (CP) is considered the most common childhood disability. It can result in life-long speech and language impairments, sensory deficits, intellectual disabilities, behavioral problems, and seizures. Rates of employment for people with CP in the United States are reported to be lower than for those with other types of disabilities. The purpose of this research was to learn how VR services affected employment outcomes among adults with CP. Five VR services were shown to play a central role in the employment success of people with CP: -- Job Placement Assistance --On-the-Job Training -- On-the-Job Support – Specifically, work and social skill development tailored specifically to the environment, workplace accommodations, and employee education about disability and consumer advocacy -- Maintenance – For example, food, clothing, shelter, and emergency healthcare -- Rehabilitation Technology – For example, adaptive tricycle (for therapeutic cycling), adapted vehicles, augmentative communication devices Other factors that affected employment outcomes included the individuals’ gender, age, educational level, and receipt of cash benefits (SSDI/SSI). Transition services in high school could be key to positive employment outcomes. Individuals who received cash benefits such as SSI and SSDI had reduced employment outcomes. Lack of information about work incentives programs, fear of losing benefits, or severity of disability may account for this.
