Hello everyone.  Thanks again to all of you who responded a few months
ago when we were looking for information about the impact of welfare
reform on housing instability and homelessness for IWPR's latest Welfare
Reform Network News issue.  The information and leads you provided were
_very_ helpful.  The paper, "The Effects of Welfare Reform on Housing
Stability and Homelessness: Current Research Findings, Legislation, and
Programs," was just posted on our webpage:
http://www.iwpr.org/WRNN10.html

The newsletter describes how current housing legislation and TANF
policies affect current and former recipients, summarizes research
findings on the impact of welfare reform on the housing stability of
TANF recipients, and highlights policy and program practices that are
occurring across the United States to address problems low-income
families face securing and maintaining housing.  The paper also includes
suggestions about ways to improve welfare reform research studies to
better capture the housing experiences of families.

If after reading the paper you have suggestions, clarifications, or find
information that needs to be corrected please let me know. We often
update our past newsletter issues.

Thanks again for all of your help and expertise,

Laura Nichols, Research Fellow
