On December 5, California Child Support Services (CA DCSS) Director David Kilgore was presented with the 2019 CSAC Distinguished Service Award by the officers and the Executive Committee of the California State Association of Counties (CSAC). The award is presented annually to the individual who has made significant public policy contributions in support of California county governments.
In the presentation remarks, the counties recognized that David was a driving force in securing increases in funding to counties for child support services in the state budget. The enacted budget included an additional $56 million for child support in 2019-2020, implemented new metrics for measuring success to retain this funding, and achieved a commitment from the Legislature to continue to work with CA DCSS to further refine this funding methodology.
Congratulations Director Kilgore – your efforts (and their recognition with this prestigious award) continue to enhance Child Support Services throughout California.
