W-2 stands for Wisconsin Works. It is a time-limited program that provides temporary cash assistance and case management services to low-income parents and pregnant women. W-2 is a work program for adults willing to engage in work activities; it is not an entitlement. 
- Wisconsin Department of Children and Families

The Wisconsin Department of Children and Families (DCF) contracts with nonprofit and for profit organizations across the state to administer W-2 programs. Many of the learners working with local literacy agencies are part of W-2 programs or may be eligible for those programs. Knowing who your W-2 contractor is and the services they offer, may help you to refer learners to programs that will benefit them and their families. Having a strong relationship with the W-2 programs may also help literacy agencies gain learners through referrals.
