The governor’s FY 2013 budget recommends $2.8 million less in state General Funds compared to FY 2012. Secondly, there are shifts in state funds for program transfers in and out of the Georgia Department of Human Services (DHS) budget to cover administrative expenses ($11 million) and replace federal TANF funds ($20.5 million).

The FY 2013 budget does not include any state funds to restore the 23.8-percent cuts that DHS experienced from FY 2009 through FY 2012. In addition, the projected loss of $37.3 million in federal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) funds will take DHS to a new low.
