    This report provides a comprehensive look at early Temporary Cash Assistance (TCA) leavers in Maryland over a 15-year span of time. Specifically, we examine outcomes for a sample of families who exited the TCA program from October 1996, the first month of TANF implementation in Maryland, through March 2000. We provide a profile of these early leavers and examine 15 years of their employment and earnings outcomes as well as their receipt of public assistance, including TCA, Food Supplement, and Medical Assistance. This information provides insight into the long-term experiences of Maryland’s early leavers affected by welfare reform. (Author abstract)

    This latest edition in the Caseload Exits at the Local Level series describes the continuation of this pattern of TCA case closures. This report examines case closures during FFY 2016, which is the one-year period of October 2015 to September 2016. It employs a series of tables and figures to characterize statewide and jurisdictional trends in case closures. Case closure information, where appropriate, is compared with open TCA cases in October 2015 and historical case closure data to highlight relevant changes and trends. Outcomes of the analyses provide policymakers and program managers with information to better understand the characteristics and reasons for case closure. (Author abstract)
