Fiscal Detail and Notes
The Department of Health and Human Services will require General Fund appropriations of $448,451 in fiscal year 2023-24 and $414,959 in fiscal year 2024-25 for one Policy Development Specialist position, one Social Services Manager position and one Social Services Specialist II position to plan, implement and oversee the consulting services program.

This bill requires the hotline created to be staffed by volunteers. Thus, this estimate does not account for any staffing of the hotline. If volunteers are not found for the hotline, a contract to staff the hotline could cost as much as $3,500,000 a year.
