Implementing the TANF Changes in the Deficit Reduction Act: "Win-Win" Solutions for Families and States

General Material
Published Date
February, 2007

This manual outlines changes to the TANF program as a result of the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 (DRA). The DRA increases the proportion of recipients who must participate in work activities and HHS' new regulations issued in 2006 limits states flexibility in assigning eligible work activities. This document includes details about these changes, information on income supports for families, TANF eligibility and requirements for people with disabilities, and concludes strategies for states trying to implement the new rules.
