DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES BOARD
The County Department of Human Services (DHS) Boards are established by Public
Act 280 of 1939, as amended. The Board duties are outlined in this act and consist
of supervising and responsible for the operations of the County Medical Care Facility
and any social services functions financed by the county as well as oversight of
the County Department of Human Services and involved in the selection and evaluation
of the county DHS Director. The DHS Board is a member of the Michigan County Social
Services Association (MCSSA), which, as mandated by Public Act 280, appoints an advisory
committee to advise the director of the State Department of Human Services. The County
DHS Board is required to have monthly meetings and to be involved with the district
and state committees of MCSSA. MCSSA’s full membership meets twice a year; in March
for the legislative conference in Lansing and in late summer for the summer conference.
District III of MCSSA meets five times a year.
