LaDonna Pavetti on C-SPAN’s “Washington Journal”


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

Here’s the clip:

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.
