This document examines screening and assessment for physical and mental health conditions that impact Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) recipients' ability to work. The document begins by defining screening and assessment and discussing their relevance for agencies serving TANF recipients. The next section answers policy questions pertaining to the following assessment-related issues: (1) objectives of screening and assessing for disabilities; (2) the best uses of exemptions or deferments; (3) TANF agencies' responsibilities to screen for disabilities; (4) kinds of disabilities that should be considered in screening and assessment; (5) appropriate times for screening; (6) appropriate screening tools for TANF settings and for use by frontline TANF staff; (7) ways TANF agencies can use outside experts to screen/assess TANF clients; (8) systematic administrative processes that can support individual screening techniques; (9) work assignments and workplace accommodations that can be considered for TANF recipients with physical or mental health issues; and (10) considerations in sharing information with employers. Pertinent research findings are presented along with profiles of innovative programs in Maine, Vermont, Maryland, Florida, Missouri, Oregon, and Tennessee. Concluding the document are the addresses (including World Wide Web sites, when available) of 9 resource contacts and sources for 24 publications. (MN)
