In the past, these data were primarily housed on an HHS/ASPE website at https://aspe.hhs.gov/afdc-data-archive . An archived version of the HHS data can be accessed at the Internet Archive at this URL: https://web.archive.org/web/20170527194701/https://aspe.hhs.gov/afdc-dat... .
The data, their corresponding codebooks, and other supporting files are available for download here as well as at the Internet Archived version of the HHS/ASPE site.
