Ohio Children: Together We Can Help Them Grow.
Children's Defense Fund-Ohio, Columbus.
Ohio, like other states, will soon begin implementing parts of a sweeping new federal welfare reform law. These seven 1- and 2-page reports, issued under the general heading of "Ohio Children: Together We Can Help Them Grow," describe various Ohio welfare programs, providing statistics on their costs and usage rates, as well as changes in the programs over time, their successes, and continued problems. Many of the reports also discuss the probable impact of the welfare reform act on the programs. Programs described are the Earned Income Tax Credit, Aid to Dependent Children (ADC), Job Opportunities and Basic Skills (JOBS), Head Start, public child care aid, and Medicaid. Included with the reports is a summary sheet on eight components of the new federal law, major statistics on Ohio welfare, and five proposals advocated for adoption when Ohio rewrites its public assistance laws. Also included is a list of questions for consideration in decisions on implementing the welfare reform act. (EV)
