Decisions over the future of DC's TANF welfare-to-work program that will be made this year, including its time limit and employment services, will have enormous implications for the well-being of DC's children. Without action, thousands of families will lose cash assistance with little likelihood of replacing it. This could push many families deeper into poverty and create challenges for the nonprofits working to help families and children. Please join us to learn more about TANF time limits, the choices facing DC's elected officials, and the role of philanthropy.
