Description

The U.S. Congress reauthorized the Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) program in February 2006 with the passage of the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005. This legislation placed more pressure on states to move TANF recipients into employment and extended the TANF block grant through 2010 with fixed funding levels.

This report examines whether participation in TANF increased and whether employment decreased as a result of the economic recession. It also compares participation in other assistance programs across families based on welfare and poverty status before and during the economic recession. Finally, this report assesses whether there were different reasons for a reduction or cut in welfare benefits before and after the start of the economic recession.

Audience

Public Welfare Officials as well as other federal employees would find this report useful.
