Abstract This publication, The Welfare Rules Databook, provides tables containing key Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) policies for each state as of July 2011, as well as longitudinal tables describing various state policies for selected years between 1996 and 2011. The tables are based on the information in the Welfare Rules Database (WRD), a publicly available, online database originally developed under the Urban Institutes Assessing the New Federalism project. The Databook is divided into five groups of tables: initial eligibility in 2011; benefits in 2011; requirements in 2011; ongoing eligibility in 2011; and policies across time, 19962011. Each chapter begins with an overview of the policies, followed by details relating to specific tables. The Databook summarizes the detailed information in the WRD.
