BALTIMORE, MD (July 28, 2011).  The Department of Human Resources’ Draft Social Services Block Grant Report for the period October 1, 2011 through September 30, 2012 is now available for review and comments at the DHR website located at http://dhr.maryland.gov.

 Beginning in October 2011, Maryland anticipates receiving from the federal government approximately $31.4 million in Social Services Block Grant (SSBG) funds.  These funds, combined with otherfederal, 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.
