The Sanction Outreach Programn
The Sanction Outreach Program alerts individuals when they are in danger of being sanctioned by welfare for failure to adhere to welfare requirements, such as attending daily classes. If they cannot begin adhering to these requirements for legitimate reasons (for example, because they have a job or another pressing family commitment), there a number of services readily available to help those in need. PROCEED works to connect individuals to these services through intensive outreach activities and a well-developed referral network.How do I find out if I am eligible for the Sanction Outreach Program?To be eligible, individuals must live in Union County and must have been in or presently in danger of becoming sanctioned by welfare.
