It was succeeded by the Division of Aid and Relief in the Dept. of Public Welfare in 1919. That division was replaced by the Division of Public Assistance in 1953, which continued until departmental reorganization in 1971. The Division of Aid and Relief was responsible for the welfare of adult poor without legal settlement, either confined to state medical facilities or provided with public relief by local authorities.
