This report examines state efforts to reduce nonmarital births since the passage of PRWORA. In addition to synthesizing existing surveys of related state efforts, the study also includes findings from a series detailed interviews with a sample of nine states. These interviews focused on how states' efforts to reduce nonmarital births had changed since passage of PRWORA, the extent to which efforts focused on teens and/or adults, challenges or barriers states encountered, changes in roles of state agencies and community-based organizations, changes in funding sources, and the potential role of the Bonus to Reward Decrease in Illegitimacy - a provision in TANF.
