Able-Bodied Adults without Dependents (ABAWD) Navigation Design Funds Grant

Able-Bodied Adults without Dependents (ABAWD) Navigator Design Funds provide start-up resources to design a statewide cohort of ABAWD Navigators located at each community and technical college. This will create a single point of contact for immediate engagement of ABAWDs in activities that meet work requirements to maintain their Basic Food eligibility and are appropriate for the individual. This includes providing intake and assessment and access to open entry activities at community colleges or community-based organizations. ABAWD Navigators will also work to enhance collaborations with community partners and increase resources for colleges to support low-income students.
