["This report examines the consequences of the dearth of affordable housing for low-income families. The authors note that less than a third of the families that receive monthly income from the Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) program also receive housing assistance from the federal government. The report provides suggestions for decreasing the affordable housing gap, helping families live closer to employment opportunities and facilitating the transition from welfare to work."
