DSS Federal Funding: All

DSS’s FY 20 Adopted Budget is more than $10 billion, of which 15 percent ($1.5 billion) comes from the federal government through thirteen individual grants. Of those, just three federal grants account for more than 80 percent of DSS’s federal grants.

DSS Federal Funding: By Program Area

DSS’s budget is divided into twenty-one program areas. Each program area relies on a mix of funding sources and is uniquely vulnerable to budget cuts. For example, Public Assistance Grants — which supports families and single adults in need of financial assistance — relies on the largest sum of federal grants ($443 million), while Home Energy Assistance — which supports funding for low income clients to help pay heating and cooling costs — relies on the largest share of federal grants (99 percent).
