VISION

To assist Nez Perce families in becoming self-sufficient and responsible for their family and children through gainful employment.

 

GOALS

The Nez Perce Tribe's TANF Program goal is to emphasize education, training and to identify employment barriers, so that the participants can find and maintain employment.

 

DESCRIPTION OF SERVICE

The applicant or family member must be an enrolled member of the Nez Perce Tribe.  To be eligible for a TANF grant, an individual must be low income, provide verification requested by the Department, negotiate and sign an Employability Development Plan (EDP), participate in work activities based on the (EDP) and meet all other personal responsibility and financial criteria.  A family may receive TANF benefits for up to 60 cumulative months, but are re-evaluated every 3 months to determine eligibility to the TANF program.  Supportive Services may also be issued to the participant or directly to the vendor, to enable them to engage in assigned TANF activities and/or accept and maintain employment.
