Opposition to CalWORKs Cuts in the May Revision


The County Welfare Directors Association (CWDA), the California State Association of Counties (CSAC), the Urban Counties of California (UCC), and the Rural County Representatives of California (RCRC) stand in opposition to the draconian cuts proposed to
the CalWORKs Program, which total $759 million ($487 million ongoing) between the Governor’s Budget in January and the May Revision. Cuts of this level will gut the services infrastructure of the CalWORKs program by eliminating vital family crisis supports; access to mental health and substance abuse resources; job readiness, training, and employment supports; and county case worker supports.
