This bill would prohibit a state receiving a TANF grant from using any part of the grant to provide assistance to a parent, caretaker relative, or legal guardian of a child age 6 to 19 who is not attending school for at least the state-required number of days per year. The bill makes a similar requirement for home schooled children. If a state fails to comply with the bill's provisions, the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) would in turn be required to reduce the grant amount to that state.
