Page 273, after line 58 insert:

Out of funds appropriated and allocated to local departments of social services, the local boards of social services may establish programs to enable children to be cared for in their homes or in the homes of relatives; to end the dependence of needy parents on government benefits by promoting job preparation, work, and marriage; to prevent and reduce the incidence of out-of-wedlock pregnancies; and/or to encourage the formation and maintenance of two-parent families."

(This amendment adds language that allows local social services departments to develop programs that could prevent individuals from entering the TANF program and assist families removed from the TANF program who might still need services in order to become self-sustaining.)
