Los Angeles County DPSS Letter To The Honorable Karen Bass - August 2013

  1. 1. Enclosure I Los Angeles County Department of Public Social Services Programs and Services Overview The Department of Public Social Services (DPSS) serves a diverse community through a variety of federal, State, and County-funded programs designed to alleviate hardship and promote health, personal responsibility, and economic independence. DPSS administers the CalWORKs, CalFresh (Food Stamps), Medi-Cal, General Relief (GR), and In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) Programs, and the Cash Assistance Program for Immigrants (CAPI) to low-income residents of Los Angeles County through dozens of DPSS Offices and other public and non-profit agencies located across the County. The following provides a description highlighting some integral components of these programs. CalWORKs: State and federally-funded temporary cash assistance for low-income families with children and any combination of the following, as necessary:  Greater Avenues for Independence (GAIN) Program: CalWORKs applicants and participants are prepared to find and maintain employment. Eligible CalWORKs applicants are engaged during the first points of contact with DPSS, and once participating in GAIN, they are provided with case management, employment services and ongoing supportive services. In addition, participants receive assistance in resolving or clearing their Welfare-to-Work (WTW) non-compliance or pending sanction through the GAIN Sanction Home Visit Outreach Project, which employs intensive case management to identify services participants need to overcome employment barriers.  CalWORKs Housing Program: Program provides a number of services and benefits designed to assist CalWORKs homeless families, or families at risk of homelessness, to prevent eviction or move out of their current situation and into affordable permanent housing. Benefits include temporary shelter, permanent housing, moving assistance, short-term rental subsidy, assistance to prevent eviction, relocation assistance, and case management services.  CalWORKs Specialized Supportive Services: Mental health, domestic violence, and substance abuse services are provided to participants in need of services.  Supplemental Security Income Assistance Program (SSIAP): SSIAP workers provide physically and mentally disabled CalWORKs participants with assistance and advocacy support throughout the SSI application process. The goal is to obtain an early SSI approval for participants who appear to meet federal SSI eligibility criteria. MEDI-CAL: State and federally-funded program which provides medical benefits to low-income families with children and elderly/disabled individuals who are unable to afford the cost of their medical care. CalFresh (FOOD STAMPS): Federal program with the purpose of promoting and safeguarding the health and well-being of low-income households by raising their levels of nutrition and increasing their food purchasing power. IHSS: State-mandated program that provides domestic services and personal care services to eligible aged, blind and disabled individuals to allow them to remain safely in their own homes.  The intent of the program is to prevent costly institutional care, by providing basic in-home care services to consumers who cannot safely perform the services themselves. Services must be related to health or safety and cannot be authorized for “comfort.” GR: County-funded cash assistance for low-income individuals not eligible for State/federal assistance, plus the following services, as necessary:  General Relief Opportunities for Work (GROW) Program: GROW transitions employable GR participants into the labor market. Participants are assisted with activities designed to prepare them for employment, including case management, employment services and supportive services.  Supplemental Security Income Medical Advocacy Program (SSIMAP): SSIMAP workers provide physically and mentally disabled GR participants with assistance and advocacy support throughout the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) application process. The goal is to obtain an early SSI approval for participants who appear to meet federal SSI eligibility criteria.
  2. 2. 2 Updated August 1, 2013 CAPI: State-funded cash assistance provided to aged, blind, and/or disabled legal non-citizens who are categorically ineligible to Supplemental Security Income/State Supplemental Payment (SSI/SSP) due to their immigration status. REFUGEE EMPLOYMENT PROGRAM (REP):  REP provides employment and training services, case management and placement services for refugees residing in the U.S. for five years or less and asylees residing in the U.S. for five years from the date they are granted asylum. Services are available to refugees aided through the CalWORKs, Refugee Cash Assistance, and GR Program, or refugees not aided through a public assistance program. EXPANDING ACCESS TO SERVICES  Customer Service Center (CSC): The CSC provides participants with a single point of contact for ease in accessing their CalWORKs, CalFresh (Food Stamps), Medi-Cal or GR case information and reporting changes through the telephone. In addition, participants have access to general case information, emergency hotlines and program hotlines 24 hours a day, 7 days a week via a self-service menu.  CalFresh (Food Stamp) and Medi-Cal Outreach: CalFresh (Food Stamp) and Medi-Cal Outreach staff is stationed at various non-traditional community sites (including health clinics, food pantries, farmers’ markets, WIC sites, churches and schools) to accept and assist with CalFresh (Food Stamp) and/or Medi-Cal applications. Workers engage with the community, providing information and referrals to available resources and services.  LINKAGES Project: A Los Angeles County interdepartmental partnership that promotes service coordination for families involved in the child welfare system (Department of Children and Family Services) who are also receiving services or benefits provided by DPSS. The goal is to increase child safety and family functioning and increase the number of positive child/family outcomes.  YourBenefitsNow (YBN) Website: Los Angeles County residents can now apply on-line for CalWORKs, CalFresh (Food Stamps), or Medi-Cal at www.dpssbenefits.lacounty.gov. Participants with an existing case can also view their benefit information through the YBN website. YBN provides 24/7 easy and convenient access for new and existing clients. FRAUD PREVENTION  Income and Eligibility Verification System (IEVS): The coordinated data exchange system made available through IEVS allows workers to search and verify income and assets associated with specific identifying information for each household member, including name, social security number, and date of birth. IEVS is a valuable tool in identifying and detecting welfare fraud.  Statewide Fingerprint Imaging System (SFIS): SFIS clerks capture fingerprints and photo images during the CalWORKs or GR application process. SFIS is a valuable tool for preventing duplicate aid fraud by matching applicant’s fingerprints against those individuals known to the statewide system.  Early Fraud Prevention and Intervention Activities: Welfare Fraud Investigators take referrals for early fraud detection from eligibility staff, the Central Fraud Reporting Line, WeTip, and computer matches from fingerprints, addresses, wage and asset reports. CO-LOCATED AGENCIES OR COUNTY DEPARTMENTS  Child Care Resource and Referral: Agencies identify appropriate child care for CalWORKs families and other families depending on family size and income. Agencies serve as a resource and referral to connect families to alternative community program services.  Health Care Options: Applicants/participants receive assistance in choosing and enrolling in a health care plan.  Department of Mental Health: Mental health services are provided to CalWORKs and GR participants.  Los Angeles County Office of Education (LACOE): LACOE provides orientations for GROW participants.  Military and Veteran’s Affairs: Staff provides referrals and resource information. BUSINESS HOURS  Los Angeles County, DPSS offices are open Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  In response to Health Care Reform, our Customer Service Centers will receive phone calls on Saturdays and during extended business hours.  DPSS has a “No Wrong Door Policy” when serving the public. Participants will receive services in the office of their choice or may accept a referral to another office.
