Funding for Teen Structured Settings Program

comparisons adjusted for inflation (cpi)

The Teen Structured Settings Program helps support teen parents under the age of 20 who are recipients of TAFDC benefits. The program helps locate an approved placement for teens as determined by the Department of Transitional Assistance (DTA) with support from the Department of Children and Families (DCF).

Approved placements include the following living arrangements:

1. With a responsible adult:

- a parent;

- an adult older than age 20 who meets the relationship requirement;

- an approved foster parent though partnership with DCF;

- a legal guardian

2. Teens can also reside in a Teen Living Program through partnership with DCF. Capacity in the Teen Living Program is often not sufficient to reach all of the teens who could benefit from the program so DTA also partners with the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) to shelter teen parents through the state's Emergency Assistance (EA) program.

3. Teens can live on their own if DTA determines they have the necessary skills and education.

The teen structured settings program provides support as long as teens also meet the education requirement - having or participating in a program to receive a high school diploma, GED or other employment training program for 20 hours per week. Participants receive child care and transportation support associated with education and employment assistance and can access a number of supportive referrals to substance abuse and mental health services, and domestic violence specialists. Victims of domestic violence may have the education requirement waived.
