CWDA and CAPA on In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS): Electronic Forms Budget Memo

Budget Priority

The County Welfare Directors Association of California (CWDA) and the California Association of Public Authorities (CAPA) respectfully request the Legislature approve $5 million General Fund (GF) and accompanying trailer bill language to support implementation of electronic forms in the In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) program. This would enable older adults and individuals with disabilities — including applicants for services, existing IHSS consumers, and their providers of care – to more expeditiously and safely access these vital services in their own homes.
