(This amendment provides approximately $3.5 million in each year from the general fund and $5.0 million from local and federal matching funds for additional eligibility workers in local departments of social services to meet the demand of rising caseloads. Based on the Hornby Zeller workload study, it is estimated that an additional 235 eligibility workers are needed to handle the existing caseload.)
