What is CARS?
CARS is the system for processing contracts and reimbursing expenses for local agencies. The system calculates about 600 non-county aid checks and grant-in-aid payments for over 280 state/county, state/tribe contracts each month. The system includes Human Services (HS), County Departments of Social Services (DSS) and 51 Board contracts, State Agencies, municipalities, non-municipalities and Income Maintenance (IM), and tribal contracts. The system records all expenditures from the county and non-county providers. It calculates amounts due and adjustments back to the State. It also generates reports for providers, counties, and tribes under contract with the State.
