This report is a descriptive analysis of heavily dependent TANF recipients who were in the program for 30 months or more, as well as successful customers who left TANF for 18 months or more and have not returned.  The two customer groups are compared on various aspects such as demographics, employment earnings, employment industries, and usage of various social services such as food stamps and employment services.
