The Choices program provides job search assistance and support services to persons receiving cash assistance benefits through the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) block grant.  The Choices program features a Work First policy that focuses on helping families transition to self-sufficiency through a quick connection to the workforce.  Any parent, including a minor parent, in a household receiving TANF assistance may be required to engage in work activities in order to continue receiving TANF.  Choices provides funding for child care assistance, transportation, work-related expenses and more.
