JFES provides employment services to time-limited recipients of
(TFA). To receive TFA in Connecticut, families need to apply for
eligibility at their local DSS office or on-line. Once DSS
determines if a family is eligible for TFA, participants will be
referred to the JFES program unless there are medical or other
program exemptions determined by DSS.
After the JFES program referral, the next step for the
participants involves a JFES program intake and orientation
session at the closest American Job Center. Following the
orientation, participants are assigned dedicated JFES case
managers to assist with employment and support services.
