This report will examine characteristics—demographics, cash assistance receipt, and employment and earnings—of adults who are recipients of Temporary Cash Assistance (TCA) benefits as well as adults who only receive benefits for children in their care. Furthermore, we examine the characteristics of adults on the different types of child-only cases. Shifting the focus of the TCA program to a more holistic approach requires an expanded perspective. Essentially, the characteristics, employment, and earnings of all adults are relevant to ensuring that children are fully supported and can reach their future economic potential.
