ASES Programs Caught in a Fiscal Squeeze
Steven Amick, Director of Policy and Partnerships, THINK Together, Santa Ana, CA 

The cost of doing business with ASES funding is going up. Not only has the consumer price index raised 16% since Proposition 49 triggered in 2006, but long overdue increases to minimum wages and part-time worker benefits have resulted in increased personnel costs. With stagnant funding for over nine years, ASES providers are finding it impossible to maintain quality services without heavy local subsidy. This session will explore the many ways ASES practitioners can meet this daunting challenge.
