Agency Funding


Non-Profit Agency Investment Application Process for FY21/22

Manatee County accepts applications annually from local non-profit agencies interested in applying for Human Services program investments from the Children's Services Dedicated Millage to help disadvantaged children and families in the community, as well as from the General Revenue to assist adult residents or provide other services to Manatee County.

The 2021/22 application period for non-profit agencies interested in applying for human services grants to assist Manatee County residents closed March 5, 2021.

Applicants must be non-profit agencies that are recognized as a corporation under the State of Florida and tax exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The online application is results-based unless otherwise instructed. Each question has both guidance and examples accessible within the application, readily available to applicants.

Please contact Kristi Hagen, Human Services Program Manager, at 941-749-3030, x3485, or with any questions you may have about receiving an investment for your Agency.

Adult Non-Profits

The Neighborhood Services Department facilitates the funding of services that are:

  • Critical to the well-being of the community.
  • Strategically effective to the well-being of the community.
The areas include Result Priorities in the areas of:
  • Autonomy and Self-Sufficiency

Each year, Manatee County Government accepts applications from nonprofit agencies for the provision of human services needed by Manatee County residents.

Investments are awarded on a competitive basis, and the Manatee County Board of County Commissioners determines the amount available each year. County assistance programs are paid on a reimbursement basis, contingent upon the successful completion of the project, the results (human gain) and fully meeting the requirements of the investment agreement.
