The County Welfare Directors Association (CWDA), Service
Employees Union International (SEIU)-CA and the National
Association of Social Workers, California Chapter appreciate the
Governor’s budget proposal to invest $5.9 million General Fund
(GF) into the Child Welfare Services (CWS) Training System to
address critical underfunding in this program that prepares
social workers in serving our state’s most vulnerable population
of children and youth.
