Welfare Reform: What Happens After Time Limits, Sanctions, and Diversions?

Keynote Speaker: The Hon. Donna Shalala, Secretary, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

Friday, February 6, 1998
1:00 PM - 4:00 PM (EST)

The 1996 welfare reform bill will result in fundamental changes in state welfare programs, including time limits, tough sanctions, and reforms designed to divert applicants from welfare. What happens to people after they lose welfare due to time limits or sanctions, or if they are "diverted" from coming on the rolls? The Honorable Donna Shalala, Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, will keynote the conference series. Next, two researchers will describe recent findings from evaluations that examine the effects of policies that remove people from welfare. Finally, a state administrator, a federal policymaker, and a national journalist will comment on these findings.
