The statement by Cynthia M. Fagnoni, managing director of education, workforce, and income security issues at the U.S. General Accounting Office, assesses progress in meeting work-focused TANF goals, paying special attention to the need to emphasize and enhance work-based strategies and the need to foster and facilitate improved management and service delivery by states.
