MCLE is pleased to offer this program to an in-person audience in our Boston conference center in addition to the live and recorded webcasts. Masks are encouraged.
This training is for legal services advocates, lawyers in private practice, social and health services workers, and community activists who want to learn about TAFDC (Transitional Aid to Families with Dependent Children)—the cash assistance program for families. The training provides an overview of program rules and eligibility, as well as information about recent policy and practice changes. The training will also cover applying for and keeping TAFDC benefits, and protections for specific populations including people with disabilities, people dealing with domestic violence, and people with limited English proficiency. In the afternoon, there will be breakout sessions on child care and non-citizen eligibility/public charge. Materials will include PowerPoint handouts and other resources. If the rules are no longer in flux because of COVID-19, we will also provide an updated TAFDC Advocacy Guide: An Advocate's Guide to the Massachusetts Welfare Rules for Families. The 2019 edition is available free at www.masslegalservices.org/TAFDCAdvocacyGuide.
