Issues: Income Assistance
Position in Brief
The League of Women Voters of Illinois believes that the federal government should bear primary responsibility for financing programs designed to meet the basic needs of individuals and families. The League supports secondary state funding for income assistance and supportive services for all low-income individuals and families.
The administration of income assistance and supportive services requires the recruitment, retention, and training of sufficient numbers of qualified personnel; clear guidelines for responsibility; adequate information systems; and program evaluation.
