Missouri Work Assistance (MWA) Program
The Missouri Work Assistance program requires all Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) participants age 18 or older and teen parents under age 18 to begin self-sufficiency planning immediately. An Individual Employment Plan (IEP) is mandatory for every Temporary Assistance eligible recipient who is not exempt from work requirements.
The Family Support Division (FSD) has contracted with Family and Workforce Centers of America (FWCA) to provide work requirement services to Temporary Assistance (TA) participants in St. Louis City.
At FWCA, our Career Coaches will assist you with a plan to reach your career goals, and if needed resources such as child care, funding for vocational education and training, GED, transportation reimbursement and cover some work-related expenses for uniforms, work shoes, tool belts, some car repairs, etc.
Time is running out! The life time limit to receive cash benefits is 45 months.
Here with our Missouri Work Assistance (MWA) Program, FWCA is committed to investing our expertise and resources in order to further achieve our cause. FWCA has been supporting our community members in a variety of ways and measuring our success not by monetary size, but by more qualitative measurements such as the scale and effectiveness of our efforts. Just imagine what we can achieve together!
