Failure to meet welfare client work goals could be costly in Mahoning County, state



Published: Thu, June 27, 2013 @ 5:22 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — Mahoning County leads Ohio’s major urban counties in the percentage of adult welfare cash assistance recipients who meet their work-participation requirement.

The state and county, however, could still lose federal funds because statewide targets haven’t been met, the county’s Job and Family Services director said.

Robert E. Bush Jr., county JFS director, released figures at today’s commissioners’ meeting showing Mahoning County led the state’s eight major urban counties in April in the percentage of adult welfare cash-assistance beneficiaries who met their 30-hour-a-week work requirement.

Of the 1,081 adult beneficiaries needing to meet this requirement, more than 62 percent did so in the county, Bush said. In the county’s two-parent cash assistance households, more than 74 percent of the 128 people required to work did so, Bush reported.
