Some of the services provided by this funding include Adoption, Adult Protective Services, Foster Care, In-Home Aide Services, Intensive Family Services, and Services to Families with Children.
Federal law requires the department to produce the SSBG report to explain program eligibility, the number of people served, the amount of funds spent and the way service is provided. Comments and questions regarding the plan or its availability are due by August 17, 2012 and should be addressed to:
