Support Funding to Address IHSS Case Management, Information, and Payrolling System (CMIPS) Backlog

Budget Priority

The County Welfare Directors Association of California (CWDA) and the California State Association of Counties (CSAC) support the Assembly version of the 2018-19 budget to include $2.5 million General Fund (one-time) and trailer bill language to address the automation backlog in the In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) automation system known as CMIPS. The Assembly version will improve CMIPS automation so county social workers can better serve IHSS providers and consumers without burdensome workarounds.

To address this backlog and the overall governance process for CMIPS, we are requesting a combination of one-time funding and ongoing trailer bill language.
