Welfare Integrity

Though welfare was originally intended to help the most vulnerable, loopholes, fraud, and expansion of eligibility have diverted resources away from those who truly need help. Without proper guardrails in place, welfare can become an open-ended gateway–allowing even millionaires to receive benefits. This creates a new class of people dependent on government and puts limited resources for the truly needy at risk–all while costing taxpayers billions of dollars.

FGA’s reforms preserve resources for the truly needy by preventing fraud and abuse of the welfare system and closing loopholes. With these solutions in place, states can ensure that resources for the truly needy are protected from scammers and individuals who should be working.
