The U.S. Departments of Health and Human Services (HHS) and Labor (DOL), in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), are encouraging states and communities to develop an integrated, seamless network of transportation services to assist individuals as they move from welfare to work. This guidance is intended to supplement current regulatory and statutory provisions.
Legislative changes have been made since guidance was released in May 1998; it has since been revised and reissued to clarify issues regarding the definition of "assistance" under TANF, data reporting, and appropriate cost principles. Additional guidance information can be found at the FTA web-site Use of TANF, WtW, and Job Access Funds for Transportation
