SANCTIONS INTERVENTION PROJECT

SANCTIONS INTERVENTION PROJECT

 
General Information
Description of ServiceProvides services to TANF (Temporary Assistance to Needy Families) families in Suffolk County. When Department of Social Services requirements are not met, the cases are referred for sanction which means a reduction in benefits. The sanction also eliminates individuals from eligibility for other services such as childcare. Referrals come directly from the Dept. of Social Services. EAC Case Managers conduct face-to-face interviews to explain the sanction process, identify barriers to compliance and refer clients to the Dept of Labor or the D.S.S. Employability Unit. Some clients are also referred for substance abuse and maintenance. Once compliance is demonstrated by completing the appropriate follow-up appointment, benefit can be restored. Cases are screened and expedited in a manner that significantly aids in maintaining housing subsides in an effort to prevent homelessness. The program is offered in all Suffolk County Dept. of Social Services locations and the Suffolk County Dept. of Labor Office building.
