Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)

Workforce Development is a mandatory program for Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF or Colorado Works) participants. It is designed to help participants gain employment, maintain stability, and become independent and self-sufficient. Participants are required to work with a case manager and enter into an individualized plan (Roadmap) that specifies the activities, terms, and conditions to continue to receive TANF benefits.

Basic Cash Assistance (BCA)

In addition to providing a direct link to the services offered at the Adams County Workforce Center, BCA case managers:

  • Provide support toward self-sufficiency by connecting clients to education, job opportunities, training, and resources.
  • Support low-income Coloradans in preparing for job opportunities and retaining employment.
  • Assist in identifying, developing, and promoting strategies to increase household income and economic stability.


County diversion payments are provided to applicants who are not eligible for cash assistance under the Colorado Works program. County diversions are a needs-based, cash or cash-equivalent payment designed to meet the short-term needs of the participant. A diversion payment is designed to address a specific crisis situation or episode of need, and is not designed to meet the basic ongoing needs of the participant.
