Resolution in Support of State Funding for Boys & Girls Clubs


Contact and/or Presenter Information
Commissioner Betsy Benac

Action Requested
Adoption of Resolution R-16-168 supporting State funding for Boys & Girls Clubs.

Enabling/Regulating Authority


Background Discussion
The state budget included a funding cut for the Florida Alliance of Boys & Girls Clubs. This funding supports critical afterschool programming and outreach services to disengaged youth (not in school and not working).  For the Boys & Girls Clubs of Manatee County, the reality of the projected cut in local funds translates to lost jobs and an estimated 370 kids that will not receive the positive impact of the Clubs.
