Senate Bill 982 (Mitchell)

CalWORKs – Ending Childhood Deep Poverty

CWDA supports SB 982, which would eliminate deep poverty in the CalWORKs program by placing a minimum grant level to ensure no CalWORKs grant falls below 50 percent of the federal poverty line.  By doing so, this bill will protect children from the worst harms of chronically unmet basic needs and better enable the CalWORKs program to achieve its goals.
