Social Services Legislative Agenda for the 112th Congress (2011-2012)
The 112th Congress should recognize that social services programs are underfunded and that a wide variety of needs remain unmet. Title XX of the Social Security Act, the Social Services Block Grant, provides states with flexible funding to provide many community-based services to people with disabilities and other targeted low income populations. The Congress should restore funding for Title XX to $2.8 billion.
