Description
  • Beginning October 1, 1997, the state of Ohio placed a time limit on the number of months a family may use Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), formerly known as Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC). Under the new law, there is a lifetime limit of five years for cash assistance. Initially, an Ohio family is restricted to using 36 months of welfare within any five year period. After five years, the Ohio family may use an additional 24 months of assistance. This Briefing Report estimates the number of Cuyahoga County TANF recipients who are likely to meet the 36 month time limit under the new law. Beginning in 1995, the Center on Urban Poverty and Social Change initiated a number of studies on local welfare recipients. 1 Since that time, Cuyahoga County's caseload, similar to the nation's, has declined dramatically. This report draws on the earlier analyses to study the current Cuyahoga County caseload.
