    The Welfare Rules Databook provides tables containing key Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) policies for each state as of July 2013, as well as longitudinal tables describing various state policies for selected years between 1996 and 2013. The tables are based on the information in the Welfare Rules Database (WRD); a publicly available, online database originally developed under the Urban Institute’s Assessing the New Federalism project. The Databook is divided into five groups of tables: initial eligibility in 2013; benefits in 2013; requirements in 2013; ongoing eligibility in 2013; and policies across time, 1996–2013. Each chapter begins with an overview of the policies, followed by details relating to specific tables.
