Welfare Reform Mostly Worked

July 24, 2005

Abstract

[Orlando Sentinel] As a high-ranking federal official in the late 1990s, Urban Institute senior fellow Olivia Golden was on the frontlines of welfare reform. Today, she oversees a major assessment of this legislative overhaul. In this look back at how low-income families have fared since 1996's reforms began putting more people in the workforce, the director of the Institute's Assessing the New Federalism project discusses welfare's successes and unfinished business.
