Support the concept that:
1. the funding of social services for the primary basic needs of food and shelter should essentially be provided by the Federal Government; and
2. that the other basic needs of education, medical (including physical and mental health needs), employment, and protective services should be met by a combination of funding through the Federal Government supplemented by state and local governments.
Objectives of this Position:
1. Support city and county governments in their efforts to explore and achieve funding resources for social services.
2. Promote and encourage cooperative and coordinated funding efforts between private and social service agencies and local governments.
