Definition
This category covers state programs that mean to divert people away from enrolling for the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program, and instead go through diversion programs that encourage work, or give lump-sum payments or vouchers. These often are temporary support programs that encourage rapid employment. It could be under the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996 (PRWORA).
