Government Printing Office publication for the Federal Depository Library:

Excerpts: The 1996 welfare reform law set sweeping goals of reducing welfare dependency, and addressing both out-of-wedlock pregnancies and single parenthood. In creating the block grant of Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), the 1996 law gave States broad latitude to design programs that promote work among those receiving welfare assistance as a way to meet the goals. TANF was created at a time when a large number of States were already experimenting with welfare-to-work programs, and many State TANF programs are the product of these experiments. Further, the 1996 welfare law gave States the authority to use TANF funds to address other social issues commonly associated with welfare dependency but which extend beyond the immediate population receiving cash assistance.
