Social Services Block Grant

Title XX of the Social Security Act

SSBG has long supported our most vulnerable children and continues to be a critical resource for child welfare. This flexible funding stream creates and sustains strong communities through a broad range of health and human services, including child abuse prevention and intervention in addition to elder abuse services, adult day care, home-delivered and center-based meal programs for senior citizens, in-home support for families, services to youth and juveniles, and parenting and pregnancy counseling for adolescent parents. Furthermore, in times of emergency crisis, SSBG has been a critical avenue for Congress to act with immediate crisis relief.

CWLA opposes any cuts or elimination of SSBG and supports a restoration of funding for the Social Services Block Grant (SSBG). SSBG funds 29 different human services in the 50 states and the District of Columbia. In many states it is a key source of support for child welfare services in addition to being the largest source of funding for Child Protective Services (CPS), surpassing Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act funding by nine times or more.
