US: Faces of the Social Services Block Grant
National Association of Counties (NACO) – June 08, 2017
The Social Services Block Grant (SSBG), a flexible funding source that can used for nearly 30 different types of services, allows states and local jurisdictions to tailor social service programming to their population’s needs. The flexibility of SSBG is crucial to its recipients as it helps fill the gaps in and between other human services programs receiving insufficient federal funding.
