Ward 8 residents are among some of the highest population that qualify and benefit from government assistance. Councilmember White is committed to strengthening the resources that we offer to residents. The measures  that Councilmember White has introduced this Council period can be found below:

  • TANF Child Benefit Protection Amendment Act of 2017 - this bill removes the reduced benefit structure for individuals who receive TANF for more than 60 months. It provides that portions of TANF payments are designated for children (80%) and for parents (20%). It also decreases the reduction in benefits for individuals not in compliance with TANF work requirements.
