IHSS Public Authority (PA)


The Yuba County IHSS Public Authority (PA) was formed by Yuba County Ordinance #1306 in December 2002, in accordance with California Welfare and Institutions Code §§12301.6 and 12302.25.  The Public Authority is a public entity separate and distinct for Yuba County, and the five-member Governing Body of the Public Authority is the Yuba County Board of Supervisors.  The Public Authority is the employer of record for employee/employer relations for all IHSS providers.


The mission of the Public Authority is to enhance the availability and quality of IHSS services, to provide consumers with access to providers who meet consumer's service needs and to provide services that support a positive and productive relationship between the consumer, provider, and IHSS Social Worker.


Public Authority Goals:

  • Advocate for IHSS services improvements at the local, state, and federal


  • Manage the IHSS provider Registry

  • Investigate qualifications and backgrounds of IHSS providers

  • Maintain a referral system for referral of providers to consumers

  • Provide access to training and support for providers and consumers

  • Negotiate wages and benefits for providers by acting as an employer of

    record for providers

  • Support the consumer's right to select, terminate, train, and direct the work of any IHSS provider providing services to them.

Assembly Bill 1682 requires that the Board of Supervisors appoint an IHSS Advisory Committee to serve in an advisory capacity regarding IHSS and the Public Authority to the County Board of Supervisor, the governing body of the Public Authority, and any administrative body in the county that is related to the delivery and administration of IHSS.
