Action Requested
  • Authorization for the Chairman to execute Amendment #1 of the HCE-15/16-MAN agreement with the Senior Connection Center, Inc., for the Home Care for the Elderly Program, transferring $6,000 of funds from the Subsidy category to the Case Management category and adopting a new Budget Summary reflecting this change.
  • Adoption of Budget Resolution B-16-048 amending the annual budget for Manatee County Florida for Fiscal Year 2015/2016.


Enabling/Regulating Authority
Florida Statutes Chapter 125

Background Discussion
  • Amendment #1 allows for the transfer of $6,000 in funding from the Subsidy category into the Case Management category due to the initial funding allotment for the cost of case Management being underestimated by the state.
  • Amendment #1 also adopts Budget Resolution B-16-048 showing a change in the annual budget for Manatee County.   No additional county match is required.
  • Home Care for the Elderly grant funds are provided by the state through the Senior Connection Center, Inc., to provide Case Management, Basic, and Special Subsidy services to persons sixty years of age or older to prevent or delay premature institutional placement.
  • The HCE program encourages the provision of care for the elderly in family type living arrangements in private homes as an alternative to nursing home or other institutional care settings.
