Some States are Taking Advantage of Under-Used Federal Fund

We previously noted that states are leaving money on the table by not accessing the TANF emergency fund. But Florida announced that it is creating 25,000 new jobs
Between now and September 30, 2010, Florida can potentially receive up to $200 million – with no matching state funds required – for the Florida Back to Work initiative designed to help pay for jobs for low-income families on a time-limited basis.“Nothing is more important than returning Floridians to the workforce and restoring their hope and economic security,” Governor Crist said. “These funds will provide businesses throughout our state a tremendous opportunity to give someone in need a fresh start and a new direction for the future.”
