The Welfare Reform Act of 1996 ended most welfare and angered many of Clinton's more liberal constituents. It did not encourage more abortions and birth control use, so stop saying that. It changed the welfare system into one requiring work in exchange for time-limited assistance (see Work requirements).

It contained a performance bonus to reward states for moving welfare recipients into jobs, state maintenance of effort requirements, and support for families moving from welfare to work.

The 1996 Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act (PRWOR) (PL 104-193), also called the "Welfare Reform Act," became law on August 22, 1996 with the signature of President Bill Clinton.
