Gregory D. Kutz (au)
The Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) block grant program provides federal grants to states for various benefits and activities, including cash welfare for needy families with children. TANF is overseen at the federal level by HHS, and administered by states.

Media coverage highlighted cases of cardholders accessing benefits at casinos and other locations that were considered inconsistent with the purpose of TANF.

Within 2 years of enactment, the law also requires HHS to oversee statesäó» compliance with these requirements. This report reviews the ability of TANF recipients to withdraw TANF funds at certain locations inconsistent with the purpose of TANF, such as gambling or other establishments. Table and figure. This is a print on demand report.
