What is it?

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. 

Impact

The bill impacts families receiving federal assistance that have children aged 6 to 19.

Cost

A CBO cost is unavailable.

AKA

Parental Accountability for Reducing Child Poverty Act

Official Title

To amend part A of title IV of the Social Security Act to require a State to deny assistance under the program of block grants to States for temporary assistance for needy families to a parent, caretaker relative, or legal guardian of a child who is not attending enough school, and for other purposes.

    So you take the money that pays the rent away and the family becomes homeless, exactly how does that get the child to school? Hurts children in the short-run and the long-run.
