Moving Up provided case management and tailored employment services to help former Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) participants find and maintain employment and advance into better jobs.
Moving Up participants received case management and additional services aligned to their individual needs. These additional services included pre- or post-employment services, career counseling, job-search help, education and training, and child care and transportation assistance. Moving Up provided incentives when participants achieved employment, education, or training milestones. The number of services participants received and the length of participation varied based on participants’ particular circumstances. Participants were parents who were former TANF participants and had stopped receiving TANF at least nine months before the program started. Moving Up was implemented in six rural counties in northeast South Carolina.
