Repeal MFG Named to Sacramento Bee’s Top 15 Political Stories of 2015


The shameful maximum family grant (MFG) policy that has exacerbated the hardship children and families in the CalWORKs program face each day and continued work to repeal it made The Sacramento Bee’s Top 15 political stories of 2015. 

The maximum family grant (MFG) rule says a family who has child while on assistance cannot receive an increase to their grant. Repealing the rule has been a long-time priority for CWDA, the Western Center on Law and Poverty and many other statewide organizations.
