THE STATE OF WELFARE: Spitzer, NYC and the Future of Public Assistance
Tuesday, March 13, 2007, 8:15 am to 10:30 am Theresa Lang Community & Student Center, Arnhold Hall 55 West 13th Street, Second Floor (between 5th and 6th avenues)
New York's city and state welfare agencies have new leaders, and both must implement last year's revised federal TANF regulations. How do local strategies mesh with Washington's latest demands? What will be the impact of new employment rules on people who struggle to work, if they can work at all? And will the low-wage workforce gain access to more––or fewer––temporary supports?
SPEAKERS: Robert Doar, Commissioner, NYC Human Resources Administration David Hansell, Commissioner, NYS Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance Jillynn Stevens, Director of Policy, Advocacy and Research, Federation of Protestant Welfare Agencies and a representative from Community Voices Heard
MODERATOR: Andrew White, Director, Center for New York City Affairs
