About the DHA/DCFAS Scholarship Program: Now in it’s 21st year, the Sacramento County Departments of Human Assistance (DHA) and Child, Family and Adult Services (DCFAS) Scholarship Program was created to assist local graduating seniors from low-income families pursue a two- or four-year education in any field of study at an accredited college, university, technical or trade school. The purpose of the scholarships is to promote higher education, economic resilience, and stronger communities.
The scholarship program is co-sponsored by the People and Resources Together (PART), a non-profit 501c3 (Tax ID # 68-0416648), DHA and DHHS employees and several advisory groups (Asian and Pacific Islander Caucus, African-American Caucus, Latino Caucus, Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Caucus, and Native American Caucus). Scholarship funds are collected from various fundraising activities held throughout the year – no public dollars are used.
In 2014, impressed by the dedication of county employees to help promising students follow their dream of going to college, Supervisor Serna pledged to match – and exceed – funds raised by employees. Since then, more than $300,000 in college scholarships have been awarded.
