Grant Diversion Program
The Grant Diversion Program is designed to alleviate a crisis that will either prevent parents from accepting or retaining employment. The intent is to provide one-time assistance - up to $1500 annually - to divert a family from receiving TANF benefits.
Grant Diversion funds may be used for services and products such as (but not limited to):
- Transportation (inlcuding vehicle repairs, tires, insurance, registration fees, etc.)
- Uniforms, specialized clothing, footwear and other employment based apparel.
- Tools and equipment.
- Union dues, agency fees, licenses, certificates and background checks.
- Medical expenses not covered by Medicaid such as eye glasses.
