    In response to the 1996 federal overhaul of the welfare program for poor families with children, the State of California in 1997 created the California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids (CalWORKs) program. CalWORKs seeks to promote employment and self-sufficiency while reducing dependence on cash assistance. Adults receiving CalWORKs benefits are subject to a five-year time limit for cash assistance. In 2002, the Welfare Policy Research Project (WPRP) advisory board commissioned a study to examine the effects of sixty-month welfare time limits in California. This report is the second in a series from this ongoing study. (author abstract)
