Michigan kicks 15,000 families off welfare
How those approximately 15,000 families are faring is unclear, the magazine said. The state is not tracking them.
Bridge Magazine and Michigan Radio are following families who have lost cash assistance as a result of the reforms, instituted in October. In a yearlong series, the news organizations also are assessing the economic impact of reform on state government and nonprofit charities.
Bridge Magazine is an online publication of the Center for Michigan, a nonprofit think tank founded by former newspaper publisher and University of Michigan Regent Phil Power.
