The Tennessee Opportunity Pilot Initiative (TOPI) is brought forth by the Tennessee Department of Human Services and TANF Opportunity Act. This initiative will help individuals, families, and the state of Tennessee by creating a new vision for the Tennessee social safety net and is dedicated to helping low-income families grow beyond their vulnerabilities. TOPI empowers all Tennesseans by partnering with local organizations to reach deep into their communities and work shoulder to shoulder with individuals and families, growing their capacity to take on life’s challenges and reduce their dependence on the social safety net.

This project is funded under an agreement with Tennessee Department of Human Services through the Tennessee Opportunity Pilot Initiative Grant, provided through the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families Program.  FTDD and all Sub-recipients are equal opportunity employers/programs. Auxiliary aids and services are available upon request to individuals with disabilities and/or limited English proficiency.  TTY - (423) 547-7511 or (423) 610-0134.
