Expanded Subsidized Employment Budget Memo
The County Welfare Directors Association of California (CWDA) opposes the proposal in the Governor’s Budget to shift funding from the CalWORKs Single Allocation to the Expanded Subsidized Employment (ESE) Program. Under the Administration’s proposal, $19.8 million associated with the base funding requirement (BFR) for ESE will be removed from the Single Allocation and provided as part of the ESE Program allocation. This funding shift is effectively a cut to the Employment Services component of the Single Allocation. We are also concerned with a provision in the Administration’s proposed trailer bill language (TBL).
