An important report published by ACF’s Office of Family Assistance sheds light on the impact of “marriage penalties” in means-tested programs. 

The Office of Family Assistance posted the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) 12th Report to Congress. This report provides data for fiscal years (FY) 2014 and 2015 and presents information regarding TANF expenditures and caseloads, work participation and earnings, the characteristics and financial circumstances of TANF recipients, TANF performance measures, interactions between TANF and child support, as well as specific provisions of state TANF programs.

OPRE has released the Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG) 1.0 Case Management and Counseling Services brief. The brief summarizes descriptive findings about case management strategies and approaches used by the first round of HPOG Program grantees.

OFA announces the publication of an issue brief with information and examples of how TANF agencies can support postsecondary completion for TANF recipients through funding work-study programs.

This report presents findings from the Systems Change Analysis of the 27 non-tribal HPOG grantees funded in 2010, which operated 49 programs. This study addresses the major research question: What changes to the service delivery system are associated with program implementation? For detailed information, review the Systems Change under the Health Profession Opportunity Grants Program Report.

This report presents key findings from the evaluation of the first round of the Tribal Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG) Program. These findings show that all five of the Tribal HPOG grantees established programs that led to healthcare training completion and employment.

The report includes findings on programs’ structures, processes, and outcomes, and insights related to these findings. The evaluation team worked to conduct a culturally responsive evaluation by receiving input from partners, advisors, and grantees throughout the evaluation.

This report presents findings from two components of the National Implementation Evaluation of the Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG): the Descriptive Implementation Study and the Outcome Study. These two studies address the following two major research questions:

  1. How are health profession training programs being implemented across the grantee sites?
  2. What individual-level outputs and outcomes occur?

Overall, the two studies found that HPOG programs generally reached their target enrollment levels, and that the majority of participants completed their course(s) of study and found healthcare jobs. However, many of those first jobs after leaving the program were entry-level positions at relatively low-wages.

The report provides data through Fiscal Year (FY) 2013 and presents information regarding TANF expenditures and caseloads, work participation and earnings, the characteristics and financial circumstances of TANF recipients, TANF performance measures, interactions between TANF and child support, as well as specific provisions of state TANF programs.
