    WELFARE REFORM HELP ON THE WORLD WIDE WEB
    by Ronald J. Meshanko, President, ERC

    Many nonprofits are struggling with the effects of welfare reform legislation in their social service programs. There is help in sifting through the piles of government legislation concerning child care, child support, food stamps, welfare to work, immigration, and temporary assistance to needy families (TANF) on the internet. The following world wide web sites offer briefing papers, abstracts on welfare legislation, and helpful links to other sites on welfare reform. Many sites offer linkage to other webpages on state responses to the new welfare legislation, including all the information you need to know to contact local officials about state-wide initiatives.
