DHHS staff develop an annual budget request in several program areas of direct service (Children's Services, Adult Services, etc) and two program areas of indirect service (Administration and Case Management Support). Staff then present the department's requested budget to the Walworth County Administrator for review.

The Administrator’s recommended budget for DHHS (and other units of county government) is then presented to the county Finance Committee for review.

The Finance Committee then develops the preliminary budget for consideration by the full Walworth County Board of Supervisors.

After the preliminary budget is published, a public hearing offers opportunity for public comment.

Final adoption of the budget by the County Board takes place in early November.

A typical DHHS budget is funded about 44% from state and federal aids, 14% from third party sources, and about 42% from the county tax levy.
