Standard Policies for General Assistance Program

Board of Supervisors

Meeting Date: 10/10/2017


The Board will hear a request from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to receive a report on the General Assistance Program and to consider a resolution adopting revised General Relief standards policies. The fully funded program provides temporary cash loans to eligible adults with no dependent children. HHS would like to create programmatic shifts and provide much-needed safety net services for some of the County's most vulnerable residents.


The Board received the report and adopted the resolution.
