TAFDC Advocacy Guide

Produced by Deborah Harris, Ruth Bourquin, Patricia Baker, Massachusetts Law Reform Institute
Last Updated January 2017

This Guide shows that the TAFDC program is complicated. As a result, DTA denies benefits to many eligible people. You can help by learning the rules and explaining them to people in need. You can work with other people to make sure DTA offices follow the rules so that people get the benefits they need for themselves and their children.

This Guide also shows that TAFDC rules often hinder the goal of aiding children and families. By joining together, we can change state and federal welfare laws to create programs that better serve the needs of low-income families and actually help families escape poverty.
