New Executive Order Pushes Work Requirements, Reviews Immigrant Eligibility
Last Tuesday, President Trump issued an executive order targeting public benefit programs. The executive order requires relevant federal departments (including USDA) to review programmatic regulations and submit a report to the White House identifying opportunities to strengthen work requirements and tighten eligibility criteria, particularly for immigrants. The executive order lays out a justification that is rooted in many misconceptions about poverty, taking aim at single mothers and declaring that public benefit programs create dependency on the federal government. USDA Secretary Sonny Perdue issued a statement echoing the White House’s language on dependency.
The NWA Leadership Academy (NWA LA) Certificate Program is a customized leadership program designed to 1) assist WIC organizations in developing leadership skills and attributes for selected new leaders, and 2) update the skills of current leaders. Additionally, the NWA LA will enable WIC organizations to clarify, communicate, and execute their vision, mission, goals and strategic initiatives. WIC personnel completing the NWA LA will possess the leadership skills and qualities necessary to think and act strategically, demonstrate critical-thinking skills, and manage results-oriented teams.
Course 1 for Cohort 7 begins May 2018.
