Welfare and Domestic Violence

January 01, 2006

Collected in this area of VAWnet are materials related to welfare, now known as the Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF), with a particular focus on the Family Violence Option and related provisions and their implementation at the federal and state level. This special collection is designed to provide advocates ready access to documents, fact sheets, research, legislation and rules, and other materials to support informed discussions with policy-makers and welfare personnel and effective advocacy on behalf of survivors.
