Publication Date: January 2008

Topic: Social conditions (Public welfare and social services)

Type: Brief


The child support program helps families become stronger and more self-sufficient. The program has other bridges into the community as well—to employers, financial institutions, property owners, health insurers, and many other sectors. Without adequate support, these bridges are at risk of collapse. The impacts of the child support funding cut will ripple throughout the community.
