Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) Cuts
Arizona lawmakers have limited federally funded welfare benefits to the shortest time window in the nation. The restrictions apply to Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), which provides assistance to low-income families with children. Under the state's new budget, Arizona will limit TANF benefits to 12 months. Arizona State University’s Morrison Institute released a report about TANF Cuts in Arizona. Thom Reilly, director for the Morrison Institute for Public Policy at ASU will discuss the findings.
