June 2024 Policy & Legislation Webinar

Moving Away from TANF Cost Recovery and Towards Full Child Support Payments to Families

Wednesday, June 5, 2024

2:00 p.m – 3:15 p.m. Eastern

This is a FREE webinar!


While the child support program was created to recoup cash assistance, a growing number of states are moving toward distributing the full amount of child support collected to current and past TANF families. Further, eliminating TANF recoupment is part of the comprehensive legislative package the National Child Support Engagement Association developed last year. Come hear from the programs that have pivoted or soon will be to passing the full amount of child support to families, including how and why they made the switch, challenges they faced, how they addressed potential fiscal impacts, and outcomes for both the TANF and child support agencies.
