Emergency Services and Disaster Response Support – May Revision


The County Welfare Directors Association (CWDA) continues to request your support for $141 million General Fund (GF) in 2023-24 and $130 million GF annually thereafter to provide funding and resources to bolster county human services departments’ emergency services and disaster preparedness and response. While the state’s revenue situation may be uncertain, we know with certainty that there will continue to be natural disasters and other emergencies that challenge county human services agencies to maintain operation of basic, necessary social service programs.
