Join us for the first in a series of webinars that will profile CWID state experiences with reverse transfer. The webinar series begins with the state of Tennessee. In 2012, the Tennessee legislature adopted legislation that encouraged reverse transfer agreements within the state, and Tennessee joined the CWID initiative in 2013. The webinar will feature the Tennessee policy context, the state’s approach to reverse transfer, early outcomes, and lessons learned.
