Title XX….update on our research..part 1

thumbs up A big “thumbs up” to Lake County’s Job and Family Services Director, Matt Battiato,  for taking the time to educate us on the Federal welfare program known as Title XX.  (Title 20 for those not into Roman numerals).  He said that the rules and regulations are detailed quite well in the Ohio Revised Code section 5101.46.  Here is the link:

http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/5101.46

There are three Lake County Agencies that receive funding through this program: (1) Job and Family Services, (2) ADAMHS Board, (3) Board of Developmental Disabilities.

Here is Matt’s explanation on how the funds are spent:

“For Lake County JFS, we receive Federal Title XX funding and use the vast majority of the funding for Child and Adult Protective Services.  We do have a small contract with Lifeline for information and referral services through their 211 service.  (LFC Comment:  It pays salaries for the JFS workers)

For Federal Fiscal Year 2017 the JFS allocation was $1,263,942 and we had a $17,000 contract with Lifeline specifically for 211 services.

For Federal Fiscal Year 2018 the JFS allocation was $1,224,651 and we had a $17,000 contract with Lifeline specifically for 211 services.

For Federal Fiscal Year 2019 the JFS allocation is $1,216,577 and we have a $10,000 contract with Lifeline specifically for 211 services.

So as you can see, the Title XX funding JFS receives is vital to assisting us in protecting vulnerable children and seniors in our community.”

We will contact the other two agencies and ask their respective level of funding and what they do with the grants.

For any citizen that wants to comment on the plans for the Title XX funding, there will be a public hearing, or you can send a letter to them.  All three agencies have combined their hearings because it is more cost effective.

We do not know much about “Lifeline”, but we promise that we will be visiting them very soon and will let you know what we discover.

Notice of Public Hearing – Title XX

Matthew Battiato, Director of Lake County Job and Family Services,
announces that the Department along with the Lake County Board of Alcohol Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services, and the Lake County Board of Developmental Disabilities will hold a Public hearing to receive public 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.

All persons are encouraged to attend and provide comment. Individuals interested in providing oral comments may register in advance by contacting Lori O’Brien at 340-4311.

Written comments may also be submitted to the Lake County Department of Job and Family Services, 177 Main St. Painesville, OH 44077 by April 8, 2019.
*********************1776

(LFC Comment:  The whole notion of Federal or State funding for ANY program makes us very wary.  What the Federal and State governments give the local communities can be taken away in any given year.  That then puts pressure to raise the funds locally, and guess what usually happens?   If you said that our property taxes go up, we can see that you are paying attention.)

  50. Greetings! Very helpful advice in this particular article! It is the little changes that make the greatest changes. Many thanks for sharing

  51. We look forward to exposing what ‘Lifeline’ (interesting name, isn’t it) is really all about. Battiato is a very caring individual, and just doing his job.

  52. I find it intriguing that JFS states they are protecting vulnerable children when Lifeline provides a path to abortion. That’s like the Democrats in NY and VA screaming about Trump separating children from their parents at the border. That dog don’t hunt…sorry. http://www.referweb.net/lake/KeywordList.aspx?;;0;;N;0;35267;abortion;Partial
