In Home Supportive Services: Increase County Administrative Funding


The County Welfare Directors Association of California (CWDA) respectfully requests an additional $240.2 million General Fund (GF) for county administration of the In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) Program to address critical and longstanding underfunding of IHSS program operations. This funding is needed to ensure IHSS social workers have manageable caseloads to perform essential functions of the IHSS program that enable older adults and persons with disabilities to remain in their homes and avoid costly institutionalization.
