Sep 30, 2003

This report presents results from an in-depth study of DC's TANF recipients. The study addresses the status of TANF recipients in 2002 and challenges to work that they may face. DC surveyed a representative sample of single-parent TANF caseheads who were on the TANF rolls in August 2002. In addition to questions about employment and income, the survey included questions about a number of different barriers or challenges to work. These include lack of skills, health or personal problems, and family or logistical issues that might make finding or keeping a job difficult.
