16,000 DC families -- including one of three children in the city -- rely on Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) for cash assistance, job training, and support services. A successful TANF program is critical to DC's future. Yet too often, DC's TANF families say they do not get the support they need to move from welfare to work. A new report by SOME and the DC Fiscal Policy Institute shares TANF recipients experiences with the program and makes recommendation for improving services for TANF families.
