Centralization comes to county programs
St. Croix County's income maintenance programs are in for a major change in 2012.
Effective Jan. 1, 2012, programs such as BadgerCare Plus, FoodShare, medical assistance, family planning and others will be handled by a regional consortium rather than by individual counties. The change in delivery of such state-funded programs is required by Act 32, which was part of Gov. Scott Walker's biennial budget.
