The Dept. of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced that it is willing to waive certain federal work participation standards under the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) block grant to permit states to experiment with ńˇýalternative and innovative strategies, policies, and procedures that are designed to improve employment outcomes for needy families.ńˇŁ The major provision that HHS would waive is the numerical performance standards that states must meet or risk being penalized through a reduction in their TANF block grant. HHS announced this initiative on July 12, 2012. The TANF statute provides that 50% of all families and 90% of two-parent families included in a participation rate are required to be engaged in work, though few states have ever faced the full standard because this percentage is reduced for certain credits. Contents of this report: (1) Introduction; TANF and Its Work Participation Standards; (3) Legislative Status of TANF; The Obama Admin.ńˇ╗s Waiver Initiative; Pre-1996 Welfare Waivers; Grandfathering of Pre-1996 Welfare Waivers Under TANF; The ńˇýSuperwaiverńˇŁ Proposal; Legislation. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
