"As described below, policymakers can improve the work requirements by such steps as:
- giving states the option to be held accountable for employment outcomes instead of the work participation rate;
- simplifying the work requirements and reducing paperwork burdens and administrative costs;
- focusing states’ incentives on improving actual employment placements;
- redefining work requirements to better support engagement of recipients in activities that will prepare them for work; and
- requiring greater financial investments in work activities."
