Welfare and Poverty in America

October 30, 2015

Abstract

In this hearing on welfare and poverty in America before the U.S. Senate Finance Committee, Dr. Pamela Loprest addresses the situation of poor single mother families who are the primary focus of the TANF program. Loprest points out that the TANF program is increasingly playing a smaller role in addressing poverty and that many poor mothers who are not receiving TANF are also not working, and she shares solutions to bring these families out of poverty.
