Compliance Reviews - Overview and Schedule

County Welfare Department Directors, Civil Rights Coordinators (CRCs), county site facilities managers, county ADA coordinators, and other county staff responsible for ensuring compliance with civil rights laws and regulations need to know about upcoming civil rights Compliance Reviews (Audits).

In accordance with federal (7 CFR 275.5(b)) and state regulations (CDSS Manual of Policies and Procedures, Division 21), the Civil Rights Section conducts Audits of county welfare department facilities and CDSS-funded programs. The Civil Rights Section surveys public contact staff and program managers, assesses physical accessibility of sites visited by members of the public, reviews case files for language access and reasonable accommodation obligations, and examines discrimination complaint logs and case files.

Audit schedules are subject to change. Audit preparations begin four months prior to the listed date when County Welfare Department Directors and CRCs receive written notice of their review. Please reach out to the Civil Rights Section at with questions about upcoming Compliance Reviews, or how counties can ensure compliance between scheduled audits.
