The Latest from NASTA

Read "TANF at 20: Time for Rational Changes" released November 2016.


"TANF at 20: Time for Rational Changes" was developed by a special work group led by APHSA's Center for Employment and Economic Well-Being and The National Association of State TANF Administrators. It contains suggested legislative, regulatory and administrative recommendations for improving TANF to be more client- and family-centric and to align TANF more productively with elements of other workforce programs.
