Concerned community members are invited to attend the hearing held this Thursday, April 26 at 6:30 p.m. at the Alameda County Administrative Building Board of Supervisors Chambers.

Released by Supervisor Wilma Chan's Office

Alameda County Supervisors Wilma Chan, Nate Miley, and Keith Carson will hold Oakland’s first annual “Human Impact Budget” town hall hearing on Thursday, April 26 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Alameda County Administrative Building Board of Supervisors Chambers (1221 Oak Street in Oakland — fifth floor)

This hearing will highlight the impact of state budget cuts on Alameda County’s most vulnerable families and residents and provide an opportunity for community members to offer feedback on the effect of these cuts.

The “Human Impact Budget” is an innovative process developed by Supervisor Wilma Chan – and adopted by the Board of Supervisors – that aims to educate local residents about state budget cuts with a direct focus on impacts to people, families and communities; raise awareness of the role of County government and the safety net; and strengthen state advocacy efforts.

At the hearing, the Supervisors will make a report available with specific analyses of how Alameda County residents are being affected by state budget cuts to CalWORKs, In Home Supportive Services, Adult Day Health Care, Medi-Cal, child care and preschool programs.

For more information or to RSVP, contact Alex Boskovich in the office of Supervisor Wilma Chan at (510) 272-6693 or email district3@acgov.org.
