Background Discussion

On September 18, 2014, the Board of County Commissioners adopted the FY2014-2015 budget that included funding for the Family Resources "Residential Shelter" program for $30,000 and an additional amount of $18,387 to be held in the Children's Services reserve funds for the same program pending further review and approval by the Children's Services Advisory Board.

On January 18, 2015, the Children's Services Advisory Board approved the additional funding for the Residential Shelter program.

An amendment to the FY2015 funding agreement with the agency is needed at this time to provide an appropriate funding mechanism and service level accountability for the remainder of the current fiscal year.

This amendment updates the funding for units of service for the period of February 1, 2015, through September 30, 2015.

Agreements specify that funding recipients must perform required levels of service and submit, among other items, proof of insurance.  Special Conditions in the agreements provide for additional program specific contractual obligations.

Funded agencies are visited during the contract year by Community Services Department staff members conducting program and other site visits.  Monthly desk reviews are also conducted.
