Budget Issue: Work Incentive Nutritional Supplement (WINS)
Program: Department of Social Services (DSS)
Finding or Recommendation: Modify the Governor's proposal to expand WINS that would increase ongoing annual costs by $53 million. The modified proposal, which save as much as $100 million annually relative to the Governor, would reduce the WINS and WINS Plus monthly benefit to $10 and require application for WINS and WINS Plus as a condition of eligibility for CalFresh and subsidized child care.
