&lt;DELETED&gt;SEC. 4. FINDINGS.&lt;/DELETED&gt;

&lt;DELETED&gt;    The Congress makes the following findings:&lt;/DELETED&gt;
        &lt;DELETED&gt;    (1) The Temporary Assistance for Needy Families 
        (TANF) Program established by the Personal Responsibility and 
        Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996 (Public Law 104-
        193) has succeeded in moving families from welfare to work and 
        reducing child poverty.&lt;/DELETED&gt;
                &lt;DELETED&gt;    (A) There has been a dramatic increase in 
                the employment of current and former welfare 
                recipients. The percentage of working recipients 
                reached an all-time high in fiscal year 1999 and 
                continued steady in fiscal years 2000 and 2001. In 
                fiscal year 2001, 33 percent of adult recipients were 
                working, compared to less than 7 percent in fiscal year 
                1992, and 11 percent in fiscal year 1996. All States 
                met the overall participation rate standard in fiscal 
                year 2001, as did the District of Columbia and Puerto 
                Rico.&lt;/DELETED&gt;
                &lt;DELETED&gt;    (B) Earnings for welfare recipients 
                remaining on the rolls have also increased 
                significantly, as have earnings for female-headed 
                households. The increases have been particularly large 
                for the bottom 2 income quintiles, that is, those women 
                who are most likely to be former or present welfare 
                recipients.&lt;/DELETED&gt;
                &lt;DELETED&gt;    (C) Welfare dependency has plummeted. As 
                of June 2002, 2,025,000 families and 5,008,000 
                individuals were receiving assistance. Accordingly, the 
                number of families in the welfare caseload and the 
                number of individuals receiving cash assistance 
                declined 54 percent and 58 percent, respectively, since 
                the enactment of TANF. These declines have persisted 
                even as unemployment rates have increased: unemployment 
                rates nationwide rose 50 percent, from 3.9 percent in 
                September 2000 to 6 percent in November 2002, while 
                welfare caseloads continued to decline.&lt;/DELETED&gt;
                &lt;DELETED&gt;    (D) The child poverty rate continued to 
                decline between 1996 and 2001, falling 20 percent from 
                20.5 to 16.3 percent. The 2001 child poverty rate 
                remains at the lowest level since 1979. Child poverty 
                rates for African-American and Hispanic children have 
                also fallen dramatically during the past 6 years. 
                African-American child poverty is at the lowest rate on 
                record and Hispanic child poverty is at the lowest 
                level reported in over 20 years.&lt;/DELETED&gt;
                &lt;DELETED&gt;    (E) Despite these gains, States have had 
                mixed success in fully engaging welfare recipients in 
                work activities. While all States have met the overall 
                work participation rates required by law, in 2001, in 
                an average month, only just over &lt;/DELETED&gt;\&lt;DELETED&gt;1/
                3&lt;/DELETED&gt;\ &lt;DELETED&gt;of all families with an adult 
                participated in work activities that were countable 
                toward the State's participation rate. Five 
                jurisdictions failed to meet the more rigorous 2-parent 
                work requirements, and 19 jurisdictions (States and 
                territories) are not subject to the 2-parent 
                requirements, most because they moved their 2-parent 
                cases to separate State programs where they are not 
                subject to a penalty for failing the 2-parent 
                rates.&lt;/DELETED&gt;
        &lt;DELETED&gt;    (2) As a Nation, we have made substantial progress 
        in reducing teen pregnancies and births, slowing increases in 
        nonmarital childbearing, and improving child support 
        collections and paternity establishment.&lt;/DELETED&gt;
                &lt;DELETED&gt;    (A) The teen birth rate has fallen 
                continuously since 1991, down a dramatic 22 percent by 
                2000. During the period of 1991-2000, teenage birth 
                rates fell in all States and the District of Columbia, 
                Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. Declines also have 
                spanned age, racial, and ethnic groups. There has been 
                success in lowering the birth rate for both younger and 
                older teens. The birth rate for those 15-17 years of 
                age is down 29 percent since 1991, and the rate for 
                those 18 and 19 is down 16 percent. Between 1991 and 
                2000, teen birth rates declined for all women ages 15-
                19--white, African American, American Indian, Asian or 
                Pacific Islander, and Hispanic women ages 15-19. The 
                rate for African American teens--until recently the 
                highest--experienced the largest decline, down 31 
                percent from 1991 to 2000, to reach the lowest rate 
                ever reported for this group. Most births to teens are 
                nonmarital; in 2000, about 73 percent of the births to 
                teens aged 15-19 occurred outside of 
                marriage.&lt;/DELETED&gt;
                &lt;DELETED&gt;    (B) Nonmarital childbearing continued to 
                increase slightly in 2001, however not at the sharp 
                rates of increase seen in recent decades. The birth 
                rate among unmarried women in 2001 was 4 percent lower 
                than its peak reached in 1994, while the proportion of 
                births occurring outside of marriage has remained at 
                approximately 33 percent since 1998.&lt;/DELETED&gt;
                &lt;DELETED&gt;    (C) The negative consequences of out-of-
                wedlock birth on the mother, the child, the family, and 
                society are well documented. These include increased 
                likelihood of welfare dependency, increased risks of 
                low birth weight, poor cognitive development, child 
                abuse and neglect, and teen parenthood, and decreased 
                likelihood of having an intact marriage during 
                adulthood.&lt;/DELETED&gt;
                &lt;DELETED&gt;    (D) An estimated 24,500,000 children do 
                not live with their biological fathers, and 7,100,000 
                children do not live with their biological mothers. 
                These facts are attributable largely to declining 
                marriage rates, increasing divorce rates, and 
                increasing rates of nonmarital births during the latter 
                part of the 20th century.&lt;/DELETED&gt;
                &lt;DELETED&gt;    (E) There has been a dramatic rise in 
                cohabitation as marriages have declined. Only 40 
                percent of children of cohabiting couples will see 
                their parents marry. Those who do marry experience a 50 
percent higher divorce rate. Children in single-parent households and 
cohabiting households are at much higher risk of child abuse than 
children in intact married and stepparent families.&lt;/DELETED&gt;
                &lt;DELETED&gt;    (F) Children who live apart from their 
                biological fathers, on average, are more likely to be 
                poor, experience educational, health, emotional, and 
                psychological problems, be victims of child abuse, 
                engage in criminal behavior, and become involved with 
                the juvenile justice system than their peers who live 
                with their married, biological mother and father. A 
                child living in a single-parent family is nearly 5 
                times as likely to be poor as a child living in a 
                married-couple family. In 2001, in married-couple 
                families, the child poverty rate was 8 percent, and in 
                households headed by a single mother, the poverty rate 
                was 39.3 percent.&lt;/DELETED&gt;
                &lt;DELETED&gt;    (G) Since the enactment of the Personal 
                Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act 
                of 1996, child support collections within the child 
                support enforcement system have grown every year, 
                increasing from $12,000,000,000 in fiscal year 1996 to 
                nearly $19,000,000,000 in fiscal year 2001. The number 
                of paternities established or acknowledged in fiscal 
                year 2002 reached an historic high of over 1,500,000--
                which includes more than a 100 percent increase through 
                in-hospital acknowledgement programs to 790,595 in 2001 
                from 324,652 in 1996. Child support collections were 
                made in well over 7,000,000 cases in fiscal year 2000, 
                significantly more than the almost 4,000,000 cases 
                having a collection in 1996.&lt;/DELETED&gt;
        &lt;DELETED&gt;    (3) The Personal Responsibility and Work 
        Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996 gave States great 
        flexibility in the use of Federal funds to develop innovative 
        programs to help families leave welfare and begin employment 
        and to encourage the formation of 2-parent families.&lt;/DELETED&gt;
                &lt;DELETED&gt;    (A) Total Federal and State TANF 
                expenditures in fiscal year 2001 were $25,500,000,000, 
                up from $24,000,000,000 in fiscal year 2000 and 
                $22,600,000,000 in fiscal year 1999. This increased 
                spending is attributable to significant new investments 
                in supportive services in the TANF program, such as 
                child care and activities to support work.&lt;/DELETED&gt;
                &lt;DELETED&gt;    (B) Since the welfare reform effort began 
                there has been a dramatic increase in work 
                participation (including employment, community service, 
                and work experience) among welfare recipients, as well 
                as an unprecedented reduction in the caseload because 
                recipients have left welfare for work.&lt;/DELETED&gt;
                &lt;DELETED&gt;    (C) States are making policy choices and 
                investment decisions best suited to the needs of their 
                citizens.&lt;/DELETED&gt;
                        &lt;DELETED&gt;    (i) To expand aid to working 
                        families, all States disregard a portion of a 
                        family's earned income when determining benefit 
                        levels.&lt;/DELETED&gt;
                        &lt;DELETED&gt;    (ii) Most States increased the 
                        limits on countable assets above the former Aid 
                        to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) 
                        program. Every State has increased the vehicle 
                        asset level above the prior AFDC limit for a 
                        family's primary automobile.&lt;/DELETED&gt;
                        &lt;DELETED&gt;    (iii) States are experimenting 
                        with programs to promote marriage and father 
                        involvement. Over half the States have 
                        eliminated restrictions on 2-parent families. 
                        Many States use TANF, child support, or State 
                        funds to support community-based activities to 
                        help fathers become more involved in their 
                        children's lives or strengthen relationships 
                        between mothers and fathers.&lt;/DELETED&gt;
        &lt;DELETED&gt;    (4) Therefore, it is the sense of the Congress 
        that increasing success in moving families from welfare to 
        work, as well as in promoting healthy marriage and other means 
        of improving child well-being, are very important Government 
        interests and the policy contained in part A of title IV of the 
        Social Security Act (as amended by this Act) is intended to 
        serve these ends.&lt;/DELETED&gt;

        government benefits'' and inserting ``families on government 
        benefits and reduce poverty''; and&lt;/DELETED&gt;

        families'' and inserting ``healthy, 2-parent married families,

&lt;DELETED&gt;``SEC. 117. FATHERHOOD PROGRAM.&lt;/DELETED&gt;

&lt;DELETED&gt;    ``(a) In General.--Title IV (42 U.S.C. 601-679b) is 
amended by inserting after part B the following:&lt;/DELETED&gt;

            &lt;DELETED&gt;```PART C--FATHERHOOD PROGRAM&lt;/DELETED&gt;

&lt;DELETED&gt;```SEC. 441. FINDINGS AND PURPOSES.&lt;/DELETED&gt;

&lt;DELETED&gt;    ```(a) Findings.--The Congress finds that there is 
substantial evidence strongly indicating the urgent need to promote and 
support involved, committed, and responsible fatherhood, and to 
encourage and support healthy marriages between parents raising 
children, including data demonstrating the following:&lt;/DELETED&gt;
        &lt;DELETED&gt;    ```(1) In approximately 90 percent of cases where 
        a parent is absent, that parent is the father.&lt;/DELETED&gt;
        &lt;DELETED&gt;    ```(2) By some estimates, 60 percent of children 
        born in the 1990's will spend a significant portion of their 
        childhood in a home without a father.&lt;/DELETED&gt;
        &lt;DELETED&gt;    ```(3) Nearly 75 percent of children in single-
        parent homes will experience poverty before they are 11 years 
        old, compared with only 20 percent of children in 2-parent 
        families.&lt;/DELETED&gt;
        &lt;DELETED&gt;    ```(4) Low income is positively correlated with 
        children's difficulties with education, social adjustment, and 
        delinquency, and single-parent households constitute a 
        disproportionate share of low-income households.&lt;/DELETED&gt;
        &lt;DELETED&gt;    ```(5) Where families (whether intact or with a 
        parent absent) are living in poverty, a significant factor is 
        the father's lack of job skills.&lt;/DELETED&gt;
        &lt;DELETED&gt;    ```(6) Children raised in 2-parent married 
        families, on average, fare better as a group in key areas, 
        including better school performance, reduced rates of substance 
        abuse, crime, and delinquency, fewer health, emotional, and 
        behavioral problems, lower rates of teenage sexual activity, 
        less risk of abuse or neglect, and lower risk of teen 
        suicide.&lt;/DELETED&gt;
        &lt;DELETED&gt;    ```(7) Committed and responsible fathering during 
        infancy and early childhood contributes to the development of 
        emotional security, curiosity, and math and verbal 
        skills.&lt;/DELETED&gt;
        &lt;DELETED&gt;    ```(8) An estimated 24,000,000 children (33.5 
        percent) live apart from their biological father.&lt;/DELETED&gt;
        &lt;DELETED&gt;    ```(9) A recent national survey indicates that of 
        children under age 18 not living with their biological father, 
        37 percent had not seen their father even once in the last 12 
        months.&lt;/DELETED&gt;
&lt;DELETED&gt;    ```(b) Purposes.--The purposes of this part are:&lt;/DELETED&gt;
        &lt;DELETED&gt;    ```(1) To provide for projects and activities by 
        public entities and by nonprofit community entities, including 
        religious organizations, designed to test promising approaches 
        to accomplishing the following objectives:&lt;/DELETED&gt;
                &lt;DELETED&gt;    ```(A) Promoting responsible, caring, and 
                effective parenting through counseling, mentoring, and

                materials and information on parenting skills, 
                encouragement of positive father involvement, including 
                the positive involvement of nonresident fathers, and 
                other methods.&lt;/DELETED&gt;
                &lt;DELETED&gt;    ```(B) Enhancing the abilities and 
                commitment of unemployed or low-income fathers to 
                provide material support for their families and to 
                avoid or leave welfare programs by assisting them to 
                take full advantage of education, job training, and job 
                search programs, to improve work habits and work 
                skills, to secure career advancement by activities such 
                as outreach and information dissemination, 
                coordination, as appropriate, with employment services 
                and job training programs, including the One-Stop

                regular payment toward past due child support 
                obligations in appropriate cases, and other 
                methods.&lt;/DELETED&gt;
                &lt;DELETED&gt;    ```(C) Improving fathers' ability to 
                effectively manage family business affairs by means 
                such as education, counseling, and mentoring in matters 
                including household management, budgeting, banking, and 
                handling of financial transactions, time management, 
                and home maintenance.&lt;/DELETED&gt;
                &lt;DELETED&gt;    ```(D) Encouraging and supporting healthy 
                marriages and married fatherhood through such 
                activities as premarital education, including the use 
                of premarital inventories, marriage preparation 
                programs, skills-based marriage education programs, 
                marital therapy, couples counseling, divorce education 
                and reduction programs, divorce mediation and 
                counseling, relationship skills enhancement programs, 
                including those designed to reduce child abuse and 
                domestic violence, and dissemination of information 
                about the benefits of marriage for both parents and 
                children.&lt;/DELETED&gt;
        &lt;DELETED&gt;    ```(2) Through the projects and activities 
        described in paragraph (1), to improve outcomes for children 
        with respect to measures such as increased family income and 
        economic security, improved school performance, better health, 
        improved emotional and behavioral stability and social 
        adjustment, and reduced risk of delinquency, crime, substance 
        abuse, child abuse and neglect, teen sexual activity, and teen 
        suicide.&lt;/DELETED&gt;
        &lt;DELETED&gt;    ```(3) To evaluate the effectiveness of various 
        approaches and to disseminate findings concerning outcomes and 
        other information in order to encourage and facilitate the 
        replication of effective approaches to accomplishing these 
        objectives.&lt;/DELETED&gt;

SEC. 118. RESPONSIBLE FATHERHOOD PROGRAM.

    (a) Responsible Fatherhood Program.--
            (1) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
                    (A) Nearly 24,000,000 children in the United 
                States, or 34 percent of all such children, live apart 
                from their biological father.
                    (B) Sixty percent of couples who divorce have at 
                least 1 child.
                    (C) The number of children living with only a 
                mother increased from just over 5,000,000 in 1960 to 
                17,000,000 in 1999, and between 1981 and 1991 the 
                percentage of children living with only 1 parent 
                increased from 19 percent to 25 percent.
                    (D) Forty percent of children who live in 
                households without a father have not seen their father 
                in at least 1 year and 50 percent of such children have 
                never visited their father's home.
                    (E) The most important factor in a child's 
                upbringing is whether the child is brought up in a 
                loving, healthy, supportive environment.
                    (F) Children who live without contact with their 
                biological father are, in comparison to children who 
                have such contact--
                            (i) 5 times more likely to live in poverty;
                            (ii) more likely to bring weapons and drugs 
                        into the classroom;
                            (iii) twice as likely to commit crime;
                            (iv) twice as likely to drop out of school;
                            (v) more likely to commit suicide;
                            (vi) more than twice as likely to abuse 
                        alcohol or drugs; and
                            (vii) more likely to become pregnant as 
                        teenagers.
                    (G) Violent criminals are overwhelmingly males who 
                grew up without fathers.
                    (H) Between 20 and 30 percent of families in 
                poverty are headed by women who have suffered domestic 
                violence during the past year, and between 40 and 60 
                percent of women with children receiving welfare were 
                abused sometime during their life.
                    (I) Responsible fatherhood includes active 
                participation in financial support and child care, as 
                well as the formation and maintenance of a positive, 
                healthy, and nonviolent relationship between father and 
                child and a cooperative relationship between parents.
                    (J) States should be encouraged to implement 
                programs that provide support for responsible 
                fatherhood, promote marriage, and increase the 
                incidence of marriage, and should not be restricted 
                from implementing such programs.
                    (K) Fatherhood programs should promote and provide 
                support services for--
                            (i) loving and healthy relationships 
                        between parents and children; and
                            (ii) cooperative parenting.
                    (L) There is a social need to reconnect children 
                and fathers.
                    (M) The promotion of responsible fatherhood and 
                encouragement of healthy 2-parent married families 
                should not--
                            (i) denigrate the standing or parenting 
                        efforts of single mothers or other caregivers;
                            (ii) lessen the protection of children from 
                        abusive parents; or
                            (iii) compromise the safety or health of 
                        the custodial parent;
                but should increase the chance that children will have 
                2 caring parents to help them grow up healthy and 
                secure.
                    (N) The promotion of responsible fatherhood must 
                always recognize and promote the values of nonviolence.
                    (O) For the future of the United States and the 
                future of our children, Congress, States, and local 
                communities should assist parents to become more 
                actively involved in their children's lives.
                    (P) Child support is an important means by which a 
                parent can take financial responsibility for a child 
                and emotional support is an important means by which a 
                parent can take social responsibility for a child.

        Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996
