Asset limits force families in need to spend their limited savings before they can qualify for assistance, leaving them vulnerable to financial emergencies and preventing them from moving along the path to financial security. Asset limits also discourage aid recipients from saving--sending the wrong message to families. Join the Shriver Center for a free webinar on asset limits in the TANF program. The webinar will feature advocates from Hawaii and Illinois who led successful campaigns to eliminate the TANF asset test in their respective states this past year.
