Background Discussion
Meals on Wheels Plus, Incorporated, requested one-time emergency funding to assist with a deficit in their operation of $200,000 for fiscal year 2016.

After careful review on June 6, 2017, the Board of County Commissioners voted to award $200,000 to Meals on Wheels Plus, Incorporated.

The Board directed staff to prepare an agreement and budget amendment to include the one-time payment of $200,000 in a lump sum payment.

Staff will review expenses incurred and paid by Meals on Wheels in the sum of $200,000 for fiscal year 2016 in order to release the $200,000 payment to Meals on Wheels Plus.

In return, Meals on Wheels Plus, Incorporated, shall maintain the Meal Service and Food Bank at existing levels and shall use the Senior Connections priority rating score to determine which clients shall be added for service.
