Welfare System Reform: Coordinating Federal, State, and Local Public Assistance Programs


There are ways at national, state, and local levels to make the nation's $200-billion system of public assistance more effective, accountable, and economical. In this book, a top-level national commission of experts analyzes the problems of coordination. Cutting through a plethora of agency programs and regulations, authorities offer succinct advice, based on two years of concentrated study, about practical reforms, and provide widely sought recommendations for improving the nation's public assistance programs. This expert survey covers all types of public assistance at every level, for all age groups and types of problems, and enables the authors to propose more efficient and effective ways to run programs at lower costs with improved accountability.
