Request for Report on Work Requirements and Medicaid, SNAP, and TANF

January 2020

SUMMARY: The Trump Administration is currently pursuing work requirements for several federal programs in the form of state waivers and new regulations that limit states' flexibility to respond to changing economic conditions. Chairman Yarmuth asked CBO to analyze the effect of work requirements and work supports on program participation, employment, and other outcomes in Medicaid, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF).
