Santa Cruz Plan Would Alter Funding for Social Services
Last week, the Santa Cruz City Council approved a provisional plan from the Social Services Committee that would overhaul how the city allocates funding for social services agencies. The plan would provide for greater flexibility in determining where funding is needed most. The committee intends to receive final approval from the City Council by mid-October and have a new system in place by the end of January 2011.
