Linking the Carter Welfare Reform Package to the Income Maintenance System, PRP 28, Vol 1
Crosby, Barbara Stevens
LBJ School of Public Affairs
The Welfare Reform Policy Research Project conducted during the 1977-78 academic year was of broad scope and generated four volumes. The synopses in this volume were compiled by members of the project in Fall 1977 as background material for their research into topics related to welfare reform and the income maintenance system for the Texas Department of Human Resources. The analysis of the Carter welfare reform proposals, Part I of this volume, was written by Professor Lodis Rhodes, Project Director, with the assistance of Barbara S. Crosby, Research Associate and Project Manager. In combination, the analysis and synopses provide a background view of current welfare programs and a forward look at the potential impacts of the reform proposals at the state level.
