$80 Million in CWS Cuts Detailed

Kinship Support Services Programs (KSSP) will receive a 12% cut in funding, the THP-Plus program will be cut by an additional 0.47%, and county Child Welfare Services allocations will be reduced by 9% according to FY 2009-2010 state budget details released today the California Department of Social Services (CDSS).
