Title XX….Federal Welfare Program…we will research

Title XX of the Social Security Act, also referred to as the Social Services Block Grant, is a capped entitlement program. Block grant funds are given to States to help them achieve a wide range of social policy goals. Funds are allocated to the States on the basis of
population.

announces that the Department along with the Lake County Board of Alcohol
Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services, and the Lake County Board of

comment on the plan for Social Services under the Title XX Program.

Services are to be provided by the Lake County Department of Job and
Family Services (LCDJFS), the Alcohol Drug Abuse and Mental Health
Services Board (ADAMHS) and the Board of Developmental Disabilities.

The hearing will take place Monday, March 25, 2019 from 9:00 a.m. until
11:00 a.m. at the Lake County Department of Job and Family Services, 177
Main St. Painesville, OH 44077.

(LFC Comments:  We will have to do some research into Lake County’s history regarding this Federal Welfare Program.   We know the three local agencies involved, but we do not know the level of funding that they each receive, and what they do with it.  As we gain knowledge, we will pass it along to our readers.)
