This chapter studies the effects of welfare reform on states, welfare recipients, and welfare delivery organisations. It aims to determine whether the increased flexibility of giving states has improved their ability to respond to the conditions and needs of the local areas. The discussion includes a study on the new strategies that were adopted by the welfare agencies for the implementation of welfare-to-work programmes. The agencies' responsibility to determine control fraud and eligibility is also discussed. The chapter ends with a section on the effects of welfare reform on recipients.

Keywords:   welfare reform, welfare recipients, welfare delivery organisations, flexibility, local areas, control fraud, eligibility
