Integrating Workforce Strategies with Child Support Services – Final Report

The State of Tennessee Department of Human Services, Child Support Division (CSD) was awarded a strategic planning grant from the U.S. Department of Human Services, Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) in September 2011. The project was a strategic planning effort designed to engage multiple agencies in a collaborative process to improve financial outcomes for low-income noncustodial parents (NCPs) and their families by developing effective, coordinated workforce programs in four urban settings. The four settings were Chattanooga, Knoxville, Nashville, and Memphis, all sites with prior experience testing collaborative efforts funded by the child support agency and aimed at helping low-income noncustodial parents with barriers to child support payment become employed. The Center for Policy Research (CPR) of Denver, Colorado, was retained to help with project planning, facilitation, and the preparation of project products.
