Get A.D.C Boost Of 7 Percent By September Aid to Dependent Children claimants will receive, on the average, approximately a 7 percent increase in their September payments, it was announced today by the State Board of Social Welfare. Board Chairman, Arthur Downing, said the increase was made possible through a larger state legislative appropriation for the current biennium, and will bring ADC grants up to 80 percent of computed need. Since April, 1964, they have been paid at a rate of 75 percent of need, and for almost two years prior to then at only 64 percent of need. State funds appropriated for Aid to Dependent Children total $6,100,000 for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 1965. This is an Increase of $1,850,200 over the yearly state appropriation for the previous biennium. Downing said, "We were providing ADC grants to 10,429 cases, or 41,530 individuals, as of July 1, 1963; as of July 1,1965, we were caring for 10,890 families, or 43,807 individuals." ADC grants, including medical care, are a combination of State, Federal, and County funds. Federal participates in $30 of each individual's share of the total family grant; State and County share equally in the part of the grant exceeding $30 per individual. Thus, if a family of four receives $140, Federal participates in only $120 of the total amount at the rate of $21.397 of $30; the State and County divide the balance of $8.603 in the $30, and the $20 remaining.
