This report looks at the three-year history of the state's welfare reform program, WorkFirst, and assesses some of the key issues facing welfare reform in the coming years.  One of the foremost issues is the 5-year time limit on welfare benefits, which will take effect in Washington State beginning August 2002.  Approximately 7,600 individuals on WorkFirst may reach the 5-year time limit between 2002 and 2003.  This study describes these high risk cases, outlines the factors that increase the likelihood of remaining on welfare, and follows program participation of long-term recipients.
