Notes Published on the Pennsylvania Human Services Executive Budget

The Pennsylvania Department of Human Services (DHS) budget is a mixture of state and federal funding. Each year, DHS is involved in the state budget process where annual funding for the department’s programs and services are expected to be determined by June 30. To learn more about the budget process in Pennsylvania, visit the Office of the Budget. Each year, DHS publishes the “Blue Book,” which provides additional details on the Governor’s budget proposal as it relates to programs managed by DHS. The “Blue Book” is available on the DHS website, prior to the DHS budget hearings in front of the Senate and House Appropriations Committees on March 5 and March 6 respectively.
