A recap of the Green Book, a most valuable resource

Since 1981, the Committee on Ways and Means has published the Green Book, which presents background material and statistical data on the major entitlement programs and other activities within the Committee's jurisdiction. Over the decades, the Green Book has become a valuable resource and standard reference on American social policy.

In the Green Book you will find legislative history, explanations, links to Congressional Research Service reports and much more about the following entitlement programs:

  • Social Security
  • Medicare
  • Supplemental Security Income
  • Unemployment Insurance
  • Railroad Benefits
  • Trade Adjustment Assistance
  • Temporary Assistance for Needy Families
  • Child Support Enforcement
  • Child Care
  • Social Services Block Grants
  • Child Welfare
  • Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation

You will also find useful appendices:

  • Federal Benefits and Services for People with Low Income
  • Social Welfare Programs in the Territories
  • Federal Benefits for Noncitizens
