From the Publisher
In response to national welfare reform legislation-the Personal Responsibilityand Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act (PRWORA), which was signed inAugust 1996-California passed legislation on August 11, 1997 that replaced theexisting Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) and Greater Avenuesto Independence (GAIN) programs with the California Work Opportunity andResponsibility to Kids (CalWORKs) program. Following an open andcompetitive bidding process, the California Department of Social Services(CDSS), which administers CalWORKs, awarded a contract to RAND to conducta statewide evaluation of the CalWORKs program.This RAND report presents the results of the first of three Annual All-CountyImplementation Surveys (ACISs) to be conducted as part of the statewideevaluation of CalWORKs.Complete survey responses from the 58 counties are contained in a companionvolume: MR-1052/1-CDSS, Welfare Reform in California: Results of the 1998 All-CountyImplementation Survey, Appendix, February 1999. Another report-MR-1051-CDSS, Welfare Reform in California: State and County Implementation ofCalWORKs in the First Year, and its Executive Summary, MR-1051/1, February1999-combines information from this survey with information from keyinformant interviews and other sources to present a richer picture of the earlyimplementation of CalWORKs programs in state government and the counties.In addition to this process study, there is a parallel impact and cost-benefit study.Preliminary results from that study will be released in October 2000, with thefinal results in October 2001.JamesRAND CDSS1700 Main StreetP.O.
