Income Assistance

The League of Women Voters of Los Angeles County ILO supports income assistance.
Position History: 

(Adopted 1972; amended 1980) 

State government should bear full or most of the responsibility for funding General Relief and for matching funds for income assistance programs. Eligibility requirements and regulations accorded families headed by a single parent should be extended to two-parent families with a working or unemployed parent and to General Relief applicants and recipients. The present program should be simplified into two systems: a job and training program for those who are employable and a simple assistance program for the non-employable.

Issues: 
Secure equal rights and equal opportunity for all. Promote social and economic justice, and the health and safety of all Americans.
