Building Better Programs

Arkansas Career Pathways Initiative

The Arkansas Career Pathways Initiative (CPI) provides a comprehensive set of academic and support services designed to enable low-income, low-skill individuals to acquire the degrees and/or credentials required to obtain and hold jobs in selected high-demand, high-wage industries. CPI is funded with federal TANF dollars but is not limited to recipients of TANF cash assistance. Students are eligible if they are adult caretakers of children under 21 and have incomes below 250 percent of the federal poverty line. Parents who participate (or whose children participate) in certain other means-tested programs are automatically eligible.
