CWDA Submits May Revision Response to Legislature
Memo Details Critical Budget Priorities for County Human Services Agencies
The release of the Governor’s May Revision last Thursday brings into stark relief that which we all already knew – the COVID 19 pandemic has wreaked havoc on our state budget and economy, not to mention the toll it has exacted on the health and personal economy of so many Californians.
The County Welfare Directors Association (CWDA) appreciates the continued investments proposed by the Governor in essential services and supports – CalWORKs, CalFresh, and SSI/SSP – needed for the most vulnerable children, adults, and families to survive. We have additional requests and recommendations that we believe are vital to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of those who county human services agencies serve and to enable those agencies to continue their extraordinary work in response to this crisis.
