Social Services Block Grant Plan
The purpose of the Social Services Block Grant Plan is to satisfy the federal law, which requires the State to report on the intended use of the Block Grant funds. The Plan for Fiscal Year 2014-2015 will be available for review on the World Wide Web and in Raleigh May 15 – May 28, 2014 for public inspection and comment.
The Social Services Block Grant (SSBG) is the major source of federal funding for the provision of a wide variety of services such as adoption services, counseling services, adult day care and foster care services, protective services for adults, housing, and residential treatment services. Other uses of these funds include child care for child welfare cases, community-based services for elderly and disabled adults (such as in-home aide services and preparation of meals), mental health services, transportation, and other human services programs. In addition to the costs of services, the Social Services Block Grant allotment to the State may be used to support the costs of administration and personnel training directly related to the provision of services.
The public is invited to offer opinions about whether or not a plan for federal social services block grant funds administered by the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) properly addresses needs in human services program areas. Written comments will be accepted in the Director's office at the location listed below, or may be submitted electronically as indicated.
Anyone interested may review these documents between May 15 – May 28, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the following N.C. Division of Social Services location, or by accessing the links below:
