APS Coalition Letter Oppose MR Cuts


The undersigned organizations strongly oppose the budget cuts made to Adult Protective Services (APS) in the Governor’s 2024-25 May Revision proposal. The May Revision proposes a permanent $40 million General Fund (GF) reduction to APS response to victims of abuse, neglect and exploitation, and a $4.8 million GF permanent reduction for training of APS social workers, largely eliminating all training to APS social workers. These cuts would also result in the permanent loss of $54.3 million in federal matching funds. Additionally, the May Revision proposes cutting $65 million GF from the Home Safe housing program serving APS clients. Total cuts to the APS program would equal $109.8 million GF.
