FY16 Budget Testimony: Department of Human Services

April 24, 2015

Sharra Greer, policy director at Children’s Law Center, testified before the Committee on Health and Human Services at the Department of Human Services hearing on Mayor Muriel Bowser’s proposed FY16 budget. In the testimony, she focused on our support for the Mayor’s proposed one-time, one-year delay in the implementation of the 60-month cut-off for families receiving Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF). She also highlighted the importance of providing Department of Human Services (DHS) with the resources to move families out of shelter and into affordable housing more quickly, while also beginning the process of replacing DC General Shelter.
