Target Rationale
The Results Washington TANF Strategy success measure target was developed using a baseline average of TANF family cases* closed due to self-sufficiency during state fiscal year 2012 (54.2%). Through implementation of a variety of target initiatives and lean process improvements across the multi-agency TANF service delivery system, the state of Washington is targeted to increase the self-sufficiency exit rate six percentage points by June 30, 2015. This increase will mark a return to the pre-recession average exit rate of 60%, regaining the valuable ground lost between calendar years 2008 and 2012. *baseline self-sufficiency exit data excludes child-only cases.
