Welfare benefits are most often calculated based on family size. Many states passed family cap policies, which deny additional benefits or reduce the cash grant to families who have additional children while on assistance. According to the State Policy Documentation Project (a joint project of the Center for Law and Social Policy and the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities) and NCSL legislative summaries, 20 states currently have a family cap policy and an additional two states have a flat cash assistance grant regardless of family size. Most of these state policies were passed in or around 1996 - 1997.
Since 1997, some states have revised their policies. Minnesota first implemented their policy in 2003. Illinois repealed their family cap effective January 2004, and Maryland repealed their provision in September 2004.
