Yale University & Urban Institute Research on Two-Generation TANF Policy

DHS established a partnership with the Urban Institute and Yale University School of Medicine to complete a baseline evaluation of the Two-Generation TANF Policy (effective April 1, 2018). The Urban Institute conducted a qualitative study through focus groups and interviews with 19 customers who had been receiving TANF for 60 months or more. Yale University assisted DHS with conducting survey research that assessed spending behaviors, child health and well-being, mental health status, and participation levels. DHS survey 565 customers receiving TANF. The data gathered during these evaluative efforts will be used to examine the impact of the Two-Generation TANF Policy on parent and child outcomes over time.
