Background Discussion
  • Amendment #2 increases the funding for Home Delivered Meals by $2,970 for a total not to exceed $70,865.
  • Amendment #2 will allow for clients currently enrolled for Home Delivered Meals service to continue to receive their daily meal delivery and Hurricane Shelf Stable Meals through 6/30/2015.
  • Funding contained in Amendment #1 for Home Delivered Meals did not reflect the increased need for meal delivery service for the high risk clients released from waiting lists by the state for the Community Care for the Elderly Program (CCE).
  • Manatee County has served as the Lead Agency for the CCE grant program for over 30 years.
  • Grant funds are provided by the state through the Senior Connection Center, Inc., to provide Case Management, Emergency Alert Response, Homemaker, Medical Transportation, Personal Care, Respite, Home Delivered Meals, Adult Daycare, and Prescription Payment services to persons sixty years of age or older to prevent or delay institutional placement.
  • Case Management and Medical Transportation are provided by the County directly with all other service areas being through subcontract.
