Policy Matters #2

Welfare Restructuring, Work & Poverty: Policy Implications from Oregonby Joan Acker, Sandra Morgen, and Lisa Gonzales with Jill Weigt, Kate Barry and Terri Heath softbound, 66 pp.  Sandra Morgen, editor. Eugene, OR: Center for the Study of Women in Society, 2002.

The second paper of the series looks at the experiences of families who left or were diverted from cash assistance (TANF) or Food Stamps in the first quarter of 1998. The data reveal that the effects of welfare restructuring programs are both more complex and less rosy than many policy makers admit.

This report was developed from a three-year study which is also accessible online in two volumes in PDF format (forthcoming).
