We believe the option to implement noncustodial parent employment services is a good strategy to increase participation in the workforce, improve compliance with court-ordered child support payments, and provide low-income Americans with a path out of poverty to financial self-sufficiency.
The Knowledge Works initiative helps child support agencies implement or enhance a noncustodial parent employment program by highlighting the work of successful programs in other jurisdictions. By sharing documents and connecting agencies to OCSE subject matter experts, we can help assess your program, plan, implement, and determine funding sources to develop your child support-led noncustodial parent employment program.
Download and use a Guide and Checklist for Employment Services Implementation and Program Planning. Access recent guidance identifying allowable federal funding sources and strategies, and read overviews of federal funding approaches.
Find resources that show "What Works," including evaluation reports, program summaries, and highlights of lessons learned during implementation. The Evaluation Continuum provides guidance on how to measure results and review evidence to determine program improvement.
