Work Support Strategies (WSS)

These resources are from CLASP's Work Support Strategies (WSS) initiative. WSS was a multi-year, foundation-funded initiative providing states financial support and technical assistance to reform their delivery of public benefits.

This article highlights five lessons learned from the Work Support Strategies initiative, which helped states improve access to public benefits while reducing administrative burdens for state workers.

Elizabeth Lower-Basch presented at the NLADA Litigation and Advocacy Leaders Conference on modernizing benefit systems on July 9, 2016.
