Background Discussion

On September 18, 2014, the Board of County Commissioners adopted the FY 2014-2015 budget that included funding for United Community Services "Big Dreams-Horizons" program for  $70,000.

The agency had challenges getting the new program off the ground.  It took several months and did not begin until February 2015.  In an effort by the agency, to provide services to disadvantaged children and to fulfill their contractual obligations to Manatee County, an amendment to the days and times of the program are being requested.  No change in the funding allocation is being requested. 

This Amendment updates only Attachment A and C  for the period of May 1, 2015, through September 30, 2015.  Attachment A, "Service Description,"  has been updated to include non-billable services.  Attachment C, "Special Conditions," has been updated to increase service days, during the school year, from three (3) to five (5) and to add a summer digital arts camp, three days a week, from June 8, 2015, through July 9, 2015.
