Budget Issue: Redesign of the CalWORKs Administrative Structure
Program: Department of Social Services (DSS)
Finding or Recommendation: Reject the Governor's proposal divide CalWORKs into two subprograms and create a Child Maintenance program. Instead, evaluate the Governor's proposals to reduce cash assistance and tighten eligibility and work requirements within the context of the current CalWORKs administrative structure.
