Personal Social Services – 1999-2000
Author: Yaakov Kop
April 16, 2000
The discussion in this chapter focuses on expenditure by the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs and, in part, by the National Insurance Institute.
The total expenditure does not reflect the full extent of resources pledged to the personal social services; these services have access to additional resources from central government (such as the budget-balancing grants that the Interior Ministry gives to municipal authorities), municipal authorities, nonprofit organizations (many of which receive government aid), and private entities. However, the central-government allocation is an important component in the resources available to the personal social services.
This paper appears as a chapter in the Center’s annual publication, Israel’s Social Services 1999-2000, Yaakov Kop (editor).
