    Georgia is missing out on key opportunities to strengthen its workforce because it does not fully leverage the potential of safety net programs Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) and Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Employment and Training (SNAP E&T).

    Georgia policymakers can better optimize federal funding to educate and train more residents earning low incomes, which will help meet the state’s need for a skilled and educated workforce. Georgia needs to produce an estimated 250,000 additional graduates with a certificate, associate’s degree or bachelor’s degree to meet its workforce needs by 2025. Focusing on Georgians with low incomes will have long-term benefits for the state. As these Georgians secure in-demand skills they are less likely to need to rely on public benefits.
