Diversionary Work Program
The Diversionary Work Program, or DWP, is a four-month program that helps low-income Minnesota families find a job.
The goal of DWP is to help parents immediately go to work rather than go on welfare. Parents are expected to sign an employment plan before their family is approved for DWP. After families have an employment plan, they can receive financial assistance to meet their basic needs and get other supports, such as food support and child and health care assistance.
