    Notes that the VIEW program increased participants' earnings and employment and encouraged work. The findings, which are similar to those from other studies of programs that combine time limits with generous earnings disregards, also suggest that the program did not decrease TANF participation and benefits before time limits were reached. The extra benefits available for participants who went to work could have been as attractive as the months of eligibility they could have been saving. However, results for one site indicate that caseworkers who put a strong emphasis on time limits might have been able to persuade clients to leave TANF faster.
