Description
 
The Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) block grant, created as part of the 1996 welfare reforms, gives states flexibility to make key decisions about how to allocate funds to provide services to low-income families. The number of families receiving cash assistance declined by over half within the first 5 years of TANF, and states shifted their TANF priorities to other forms of aid, or non-cash services. In FY 2011, states spent about 64% of nearly $31 billion in federal and state funds for such services, with federal funds accounting for nearly $9 billion. This report examined (1) how states have used TANF funds for non-cash services; and (2) what information is available to assess TANF performance for non-cash services and what challenges are involved in doing so. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
