Description: The purpose of this study is to research the economic and non-economic outcomes of Texans who were redirected or denied Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) services for non-financial reasons, those who elected to recieve a lump-sum payment in lieu of TANF and those families who left TANF.
