Help Us Improve the Safety Net!

NETWORK is conducting a nationwide survey to track how well TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families/Welfare) programs work. Our findings will be published in a major report this summer, in time for TANF reauthorization.

Here's where we could use your help: We want to evaluate TANF programs both from an administrative and from a personal standpoint. We are in the process of coordinating with various organizations across the country to gather data and anecdotes from low-income families with dependants. These voices will be incorporated into our report alongside information from the organizations themselves. If you can work with us or know of organizations with whom we may partner, please contact Amy Johnson at, or (202) 347-9797 x 201 for details.
