The initiatives proposed in the Budget independently help bolster critical safety-net programs that Californians across the state depend on. Taken collectively, these investments have an even broader impact as they advance the health and well-being, as well as the social and economic mobility, of all Californians.
The health and human services Budget proposals are the foundation of a Healthy California for All. We will continue exploring policy solutions that improve the health and well-being of entire communities while driving toward an integrated health and human services system that is accessible, affordable, high-quality and equitable for all.
To that end, it is important to recognize that our work extends to the entire life span: from initiatives focused on improving the trajectory of our children to efforts designed to improve the quality of life of older and disabled Californians. Most importantly, our work looks to make a positive impact on the lives of all Californians, irrespective of age, race, gender, socioeconomic status and sexual orientation.
Finally, person-centered programs require integrated data organized around people and their communities rather than programs. This is why the Budget looks to enhance the actionable use of our data so that we can better understand the conditions in communities, the impact of current programs, and the opportunities to improve the delivery of our services.
