The Teen Parent Assessment program empowers teen parents to move toward self-sufficiency. The program strives to accomplish self-sufficiency by:
- Completing assessments of the living arrangements for TANF applicants and clients who are under 18 years of age, and not living with their parent or legal guardian;
- Providing case management and support services to teen parents who receive TANF benefits to help them develop goals and achieve self-sufficiency;
- Working to reduce teen pregnancy in the District of Columbia.
- Conducting motivational workshops.
Participating teen parents have access to the following services through TPAP:
- Educational programs
- Parenting classes
- Teen pregnancy and prevention programs
- Support obtaining daycare
- Other community-based services
To be eligible for TPAP services you must be TANF eligible, a TANF recipient, or a teen parent under the age of 18 in need of supportive services. Referrals are accepted in writing or by phone, including caseworkers, the DC Public Schools, community-based programs, and the Economic Security Administration.
