Enabling/Regulating Authority
Florida Statutes Chapter 125

Background Discussion
  • Manatee County was designated by the Department of Elder Affairs, through the West Central Florida Area Agency on Aging, Inc., as the Lead Agency for the Home Care for the Elderly (HCE) grant program on January 1, 1996.
  • HCE grant funds are provided by the state through the West Central Florida Area Agency on Aging, 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 elderly in family type living arrangements in private homes as an alternative to nursing home or other institutional care settings.
  • Amendment #1 allows for the transfer of funds ($4,000) from subsidy into case management due to the initial allotment for case management being under estimated by the state.
  • Due to the decreased demand in this program and all clients on the wait list addressed and an increased demand for in-home services under the Community Care for the Elderly Program, Amendment #1 allows for the transfer of $10,000 from one program to the other.
  • Amendment #1 also adopts Budget Resolution B-13-037    showing a change in the annual budget for Manatee County.
