Last month our partners at the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless, Heartland Alliance and a group of grassroots leaders who have direct experience receiving TANF released a research report on the Illinois Temporary Assistance to Needy Families program (TANF).
The report is titled “Resigned to the Process: Barriers to Accessing and Maintaining TANF among Low-Income Families with Young Children in Illinois.”
The mixed methods study included individual interviews with TANF applicants and customers, a statewide survey with TANF caseworkers and an analysis of TANF administrative data. The report includes key finding and policy recommendations at the federal and state level.
