DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES RELEASES DRAFT SOCIAL SERVICES BLOCK GRANT REPORT FOR 2024

The Department of Human Services (DHS) Draft Social Services Block Grant Report for the period of October 1, 2023, through September 30, 2024, is now available for review and comments at the DHS website, www.dhs.maryland.gov.

Beginning in October 2023, Maryland anticipates receiving from the federal government approximately $29 million in Social Services Block Grant (SSBG) funds. These funds, combined with other federal, state and local funding, will provide a wide range of social services for Maryland residents. Some of the services provided by this funding include Adoption, Adult Protective Services, Foster Care, In-Home Aide Services, Intensive Family Services and Services to Families with Children.

Federal law requires the Department to produce the SSBG Report to explain program eligibility, the number of people served, the amount of funds spent, and the way service is provided. Comments and questions regarding the plan or its availability are due by October 31, 2023, and should be addressed to:

Stephen Liggett-Creel, LCSW-C
Acting Executive Director
311 West Saratoga Street
Baltimore, MD 21201
