Verify 100 Percent of Welfare Applications with Home Visits to Prevent Fraud and Abuse!


The 100 Percent Campaign™ is an educational and advocacy campaign to help enact state legislation that will save taxpayers at least 25 percent of the cost of public assistance cash and services by verifying 100 percent of the applications to prevent fraud and abuse. The verification process includes a home visit by an investigator trained in fraud prevention. Public assistance fraud and abuse steals money from the taxpayers and from lawful recipients of public assistance money and services.

This program is already a proven success in San Diego County, but it needs to be expanded statewide (see the related news articles below). San Diego County adopted this program, named "Project 100 Percent", in June of 1997. "Project 100 Percent" required that all applicants for public assistance in the county, within 10 days of the application for services, receive a brief home call from a San Diego County District Attorney investigator, at the applicant's residence.

More than 118,000 home calls have been conducted, and have consistently identified an average of 25 percent of all preliminarily approved applicants to be totally ineligible for public assistance, based on the investigative findings of the District Attorney.

With 100 percent verification of public assistance applications, fraud will be detected and prevented before it is too late and the money is gone, saving California taxpayers Billions of dollars every year.

California State Senator Tom McClintock has introduced SB 269 on February 15, 2007. SB 269 will implement the "Project 100 Percent" on a statewide basis.
