The three programs examined in this report the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) block grant, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly Food Stamps), and federal housing assistance programs (public housing and Section 8 tenant and project-based assistance) are similar, in that they are administered at the state or local level. They differ in the forms of assistance they provide. TANF provides cash assistance and other supports to low-income parents and their children, with a specific focus on promoting work. SNAP provides food assistance to a broader set of poor households including families with children, elderly households, and persons with disabilities. The housing assistance programs offer subsidized rental housing to all types of poor families, like SNAP. All three programs feature some form of drug- and other crime-related restrictions and all three leave discretion in applying those restrictions to state and local administrators. Contents of this report: Introduction; Evolution of Federal Policies; Drug Testing and Crime-Related Restrictions; Conclusion: Similarities and Differences;  Considerations for Policymakers. Tables. This is a print on demand report.
