Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) Program, Elimination of Enhanced Caseload Reduction Credit for Excess Maintenance-of-Effort Expenditures
The Administration for Children and Families proposes to revise the TANF regulations to eliminate the provision that allows a State to receive additional caseload reduction credit for maintenance- of-effort (MOE) expenditures in excess of its required MOE spending. This provision is no longer necessary and not consistent with Congressional direction in the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005.
