TEMPORARY ASSISTANCE FOR NEEDY FAMILIES (TANF)

 

The House and Senate passed a six month extension of TANF last week. This important legislation designed to lift families out of poverty, enable individuals to gain skills needed to work and earn enough to meet basic human needs, and improve child well-being will not likely be addressed by policy makers until next year.

TANF still must be reauthorized—normally for a five or six year period to ensure that state governments can budget appropriately.

The Episcopal Church Office of Government Relations continues to follow this issue closely, and we will update the background paper on TANF as new information develops.

A description of this legislation and the General Convention Resolutions related to it are availabloe available at http://www.episcopalchurch.org/3654_28860_ENG_HTM.htm
