UMaine Welfare Study Cited in Press Herald Article

A University of Maine study commissioned by Maine Equal Justice Partners was cited in the Press Herald article “Maine Speaker calls bill pathway out of poverty.” The study found a provision enacted last June by Gov. Paul LePage that limits Temporary Assistance for Needy Families to 60 months has caused 1,500 families to lose assistance. The study showed 39 percent of those who lost benefits reported a work-limiting disability and more than 40 percent had less than a high school education.
