Abstract:     
This article challenges the prevailing conventional wisdom that attests to the natural alliance between welfare reform and devolution; it identifies the serious harms that are engendered when states, for-profit corporations, and faith-based institutions implement the federal imperatives of welfare reform; and, ultimately, it puts forth a more dynamic, alternative policy framework that seeks to privilege both local voices and federal stewardship by forging anti-poverty partnerships centered on federal-state and public-private cooperatives.
