Webinar: Impact of Integrating Behavioral Health with TANF to Build a Culture of Health (Research-in-Progress Series)


This project evaluates the Building Wealth and Health Network which, by aligning Medicaid coverage for behavioral services and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) in Pennsylvania, aims to reduce children's developmental risks and improve caregiver mental health, income and employment, while reducing the number of returning beneficiaries to the TANF program. Using a propensity score-matched difference-in-difference research design with longitudinally-linked service records and client-reported survey data, this study assesses the network’s impacts and identifies ways to improve support systems to promote a Culture of Health within anti-poverty programming.
