Michigan Works programs
The 25 local Michigan Works! Agencies (MWAs) operate adult programs on a year-round basis. The funds allocated to the MWAs for adult programs must be used to provide core, intensive, and training services to adults. Core services include, but are not limited to, outreach, and intake, orientation to other services, initial assessment, job search, and placement assistance. Intensive services include comprehensive and specialized assessment, group counseling, and short-term pre-vocational services. Training services include on-the- job training, skill-upgrading, and occupational skills training.
The JET Program
The JET program consists of activities designed to help families move toward financial independence. It was designed to fulfill the requirements of the federal Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) law. All TANF recipients are required to participate, unless they are unable.
