The Meet the Need Coalition is a group of current and former TANF participants and advocacy organizations in Pennsylvania. We are working to improve the TANF program and increase the TANF grant amount. The effort is spearheaded by Community Legal Services, Pennsylvania Health Access Network, Black Women’s Policy Agenda, and Just Harvest.
This report shares survey responses, background on the TANF program, and suggestions for improvement so that
TANF can truly meet the needs of Pennsylvanians living in poverty.
