LaDonna Pavetti appeared on “Washington Journal” yesterday to discuss welfare reform and the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program.

As she noted, state TANF programs responded very unevenly to the large increase in need during the Great Recession: caseloads rose by 20 percent or more in some states while rising only modestly or even falling in others. CBPP has prepared state-by-state fact sheets on changes in TANF programs in recent years and is posting new information as it becomes available.
